1115 – NCEA Education for Sustainability

Lynne Grove is an English, social studies and education for sustainability teacher at Aparima College in Riverton. Aparima College is a year 7 – 13 school in the deep south of the South Island with around 200 students. Lynne shares strategies for facilitating assessment of the 91735 Education for sustainability achievement standard. She describes their whole school focus to promote localised curriculum and mātauranga Māori, and how this supported student engagement, cross curricular collaboration (visual Art, technology) and community input (kaumatua and the local kindergarten). Level 2 NCEA assessment evidence from one of her students is shared to demonstrate positive outcomes of this collaboration.
