On Friday 15th March, prior to the tragic events of Christchurch, thousands of New Zealand school students participated in the global School Strike 4 Climate.
Here, in this special edition of our newsletter we would like to honour the energy, commitment and passion that went into the events held across Te Upoko o te Ika a Māui.
We would also like to highlight for teachers and principals the learning and leadership opportunities that this movement presents for students as they engage with an issue that matters to them. Such significant real world learning contexts are at the heart of the Enviroschools Kaupapa and the New Zealand Curriculum.
Ka mau te wehi ngā rangatahi o Aotearoa!
