Showcase China – Beijing

The Ministry of Education worked with the New Zealand Olympic Academy, Asia: New Zealand Foundation, Confucius Institute, and International Languages Aotearoa New Zealand to develop this online teaching and learning resource which was used in the lead-up to the 2008 Games, and has been adapted for the upcoming 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics.

Showcase China is aligned to the curriculum, and is an opportunity to engage students with the future-focused themes of globalisation and sustainability through making connections across the learning areas, values, and key competencies.

There are two teaching and learning resources, each with activities for years 1–10:

Integrated curriculum


A combination of activities from the social studies, English, arts, and language learning areas that explore the culture, customs, and traditions of China.

Physical education

Sports day.

Opportunities for students to explore the attitudes and values relating to Olympism (Olympic Ideals), connecting with Beijing.
