Learning communities focussed on the implementation in schools of the New Zealand Curriculum (2007)

Welcome to our New Zealand Curriculum Communities wiki!

This wiki is for members of a range of Auckland and Northland based, NZC learning communities - for sharing thinking, challenges and progress in the implementation of the NZC ( 2007)

He toa takitini taku toa, ehara i te toa takitahi

My strength was the strength of many, not just of one warrior

NZC learning communities, 2011.

We have three groupings of NZC communities in 2011:
  • Sandra and Margaret lead one group of NZCCs in Auckland, focussed on school leadership
  • Gayle, with Sandra's support, leads a second grouping of NZCCs, focussed on leading in learning areas
  • Lesley, with Gayle's support, leads a Northland based group of NZCCs, foussed on school leadership

There is a separate page for each of these groups, only for organisational information that is specific to the particular group (see menu). However, substantive NZC comment/discussion/resources should be situated on the themed pages, so that we can all share knowledge and practice.


The discussions related to this page (see tab) date from 2010, but they share some useful learning about PLGs; who will start a new discussion topic, the first in 2011? On this page or in relation to other pages?

Contributing to this wiki

If everyone makes an effort to contribute to a discussion page - on any of these pages - by asking a questions or making an observation, or responding to someone else - this wiki will be lively and useful.
So ... Add a comment, for example on the Discussion Pages.

  • If you are adding to a current discussion, enter that discussion by selecting the "subject" of the discussion (left of screen) and the full discussion will be shown on screen, with a box for you to write a response at the bottom of the discussion - no need to sign, as your name will automatically be saved when you "submit" your response.
  • If you want to start a different discussion, on a new subject related to the page, select "New Post", provide a subject for your comment, write and submit your comment - and a new line of discussion will have been started!

Add material - documents and references (if you have difficulty loading files, please email Margaret. From some institutions with proxies, it is not possible to upload files onto the wiki using Firefox)

If you are not sure where to go first, to make the most of your visit to the wiki, try first selecting "Recent Changes" , at the top of the menu, above the "search" box; that will tell you where the latest activity has been happening!
