Should New Zealand history be taught in all schools?

The team Reporter from Hamilton Press

Hi neighbours - Jacinda Ardern has announced that all schools and kura would be expected, by 2022, to teach the country's history.

Curriculum changes would reset a national framework so that all learners and ākonga were aware of key aspects of New Zealand history and how they had influenced and shaped the nation.

What do you think? Should New Zealand history be taught in all schools, or are there other, more important subjects to teach?

The Team from Neighbourly Property

Our instructions are clear, auction day will be sale day. Situated in a sought after Hamilton location you'll find this well maintained and well presented brick townhouse featuring two large bedrooms, master bedroom with ensuite and walk in robe, and a third room ideally suited to a home office or guest bedroom. There's generous living and separate dining spaces beautifully position to capture the sun.
The kitchen whilst in original condition has been extremely well looked after and the bathroom offers the luxury of either bathtub or shower. The interior has been decorated in a neutral colour scheme and compliments a wide range of furnishings and an internal access garage and separate laundry complete the picture perfectly.
Other notable features include a DVS system, water filter, gas hot water, five smoke alarms, heat pump, heated towel rail and a panel wall heater for extra comfort.
Outside it's all about easy care with a sunny paved patio off the main living and beautifully manicured gardens and lawn. Centrally located it's only a couple of minutes drive to the CBD or the Te Awa shopping mall. It's the ideal property for those looking to downsize and equally suited to investors and perhaps first home buyers and professional couples. Once again, our instructions are clear and the vendors want auction day to be sale day.
