Bonus Activity: A Bilingual Schooling System - Week Three: The Post War(s) Era (1951-1999) - Day 3: Groovy Man (The 1970’s)

For much of the past century, schools in New Zealand taught students in only one language – English. In 1972, Ngā Tamatoa member, Mrs. Hana Jackson, submitted a petition to Parliament to ask the government to include the teaching of Te Reo Māori (the Māori language) and Māori culture in New Zealand schools. We still use petitions to this day when we want an organization (e.g. a school) to make a change.

Think about your school. What is one thing that you would like change? Would you like to learn about different things?

To Mr. Johnston,

I think that instead of just 2 water fountains in each area we should have 3 water fountains. I am saying this because after kids play at school and the bell rings they go have a drink of water because they aren't allowed to go during learning time, there are a lot of kids at the fountains that some of the kids take a long time that some other kids will be late for class. Also when some water fountains are getting fixed.

Thank you
