Kia ora, Nĭ hăo, Konnichi wa, Namaste, and welcome to the Asia Knowledge kete.

Asia is growing faster than any other region and in the 21st century will be extremely important to New Zealand economically, politically, and socially. It is vital that students in New Zealand have opportunities to learn about Asia to ensure they are equipped to be successful in this changing environment.

Asia Knowledge is a priority in the New Zealand Curriculum and therefore has official status as a context for integrated learning and as a context for the future-focused themes. Schools have the flexibility to design relevant and meaningful learning programmes to encourage students to become active and positive members of their local, national, and global communities. Learning about Asia is an important aspect of this.

This website is designed to help schools with the process of school curriculum design.
