Being an Asia Aware school

Growing global citizens in a changing world

Asia is the fastest growing region in the world and is set to play a major role in global affairs for decades to come. Learning about Asia is central to developing our children and young people’s global knowledge – a concept reflected in the values and vision of both Te Marautanga o Aotearoa and The New Zealand Curriculum.

It’s imperative that students in the 21st century are ready to embrace the opportunities that this changing world environment offers. This means acquiring different knowledge and skills. You can support your students to prepare for this environment by working with your school community to become Asia Aware. Creating change towards becoming an Asia Aware kura or school is easy – and this website is here to help you and your school community make it happen.
