Teaching Resource

The Resource also links to the New Zealand Curriculum, Te Marautanga o Aotearoa (Maori Curriculum), Education for Sustainability Guidelines and the Ministry of Education Guidelines for Environmental Education in New Zealand Schools.

Bream Head Te Whara has recently featured on LEARNZ, a resource to allow NZ schools to have a virtual fieldtrip. Adam, along with four students from Whangarei Heads joined LEARNZ teacher Andrew Sylvester for the day on the reserve as they explored BHSR as part of their Te Araroa series. You can view the short educational clips at the bottom of this page.
