The topic 'What is Education for?', a debate on the fundamental purpose of Education in New Zealand today.

Professor Andy Hargreaves from Boston University was a guest speaker.

Below is a statement jointly released by NZPF and NZEI 

Dear Colleagues

On 23 January the Prime Minister made a pre-Budget announcement of a policy initiative to re-structure school leadership across the education sector. The initiative proposes the formation of "communities of schools" and creates new principal and teacher roles that will fundamentally change schooling in both primary and secondary schools.

Kia ora koutou
Ko wai tēnei?
Ko Te Kinga te maunga
Ko Waimakariri te awa
He pākehā ahau
Ko Philip Harding tōku ingoa
Nō Ōtautahi ahau
Engari, e noho ana ahau kei Rangiora.
Ko tuahuriri taku korowai whakaruruhau.
He tumuaki ahau i te kura tua tahi o Paparoa Street
Nō reira
Tēnā koutou, tēnā koutou, tēnā koutou katoa

Kia Orana, Malo e lelei, Talofa lava

Welcome to the 21st Annual Regional Presidents’ Moot. 

The David Stewart Memorial Scholarship is a joint initiative of NZEI Te Rui Roa (NZEI) and the New Zealand Principals’ Federation (NZPF).

The Scholarship of $18,000 will be awarded to a single applicant each year. Joint applications will not be accepted and the Scholarship monies will not be split between separate multiple applicants. NZEI, NZPF and Te Ariki Trust may decide how the successful study will be formally publicised by NZEI, NZPF and Te Ariki Trust and how it will be used to achieve the purpose of the scholarship.

Please note applications close  30 April.

Some 14% of New Zealand’s children do not achieve as well in reading, maths and science as the rest. At NCEA level 2, 20% do not complete  the qualification. Whilst those statistics still put New Zealand well ahead of most OECD countries, it does not mean that teaching professionals in New Zealand are not concerned about them. Researchers and teaching professionals are constantly seeking out initiatives to address underachievement.
