The Top Outdoor Spot competition for schools is returning in 2017.
Running throughout term 1 and at the start of term 2, the competition encourages New Zealand school children to send in a photo or drawing of their favourite outdoor spot and a short description about what makes it special for the chance to win.
The students who send in the "Best Photo", “Best Drawing” and "Best Description" will each win prize packs for themselves and prizes for their schools.
All photos, drawings and descriptions sent in between 30 January 2017 and the end of the day on 7 May 2017 will be in to win.
The Pasifika dual language resources are designed to support the early language and literacy learning of Pasifika new entrant students in English-medium classrooms.
Teacher and parent support material accompanies these resources. Many of the dual language books are available as PDFs and all the books are available as MP3 audio files.
Print copies of the texts are available from Down the Back of the Chair.
The resources are in five Pasifika languages – Samoan, Tongan, Tokelauan, Cook Islands Māori and Niuean – and English.
In May 2017, Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa and Creative New Zealand Toi Aotearoa will launch a digital resource for classroom learning about New Zealand at the Venice Biennale.
The resource will focus on artist Lisa Reihana, New Zealand’s representative at the 2017 Venice Biennale and will provide a set of teaching units for Visual Arts and Social Science learning areas, years 7–13.
