The final Te Takanga o Te Wā in Te Marautanga o Aotearoa and Aotearoa New Zealand’s histories in The New Zealand Curriculum content is now available. 

From 2023, Te Takanga o Te Wā and Aotearoa New Zealand’s histories will be part of all kura and schools’ marau ā-kura and local curriculum. The final content has been released in March 2022 to give kura and schools time to plan for implementation of the new curriculum content from term 1, 2023.

This update to our national curriculum will ensure that all ākonga leave school or kura with an understanding of our histories, and how they have shaped our nation.
