Our club has been fortunate to be able to continue to meet together during these difficult times. At our last meeting we heard from Deidre Alderson, Director of Education, Auckland, who spoke about the many changes currently underway in our school curriculum. A focus on literacy development and mathematics is clearly evident, along with a review of NZ history being taught in schools. It was interesting to hear how schools are meeting these new changes while also having to cope with the huge challenges COVID has brought. It was evident by the number of questions asked that there is very keen interest in what is happening in our schools.
