01 Aug Call to Teach New Zealand History
This week, renowned historian, Vincent O’Malley, spoke to 75 senior students about the New Zealand Wars. Dr O’Malley has written extensively on this subject and was able to bring a wealth of knowledge to his presentation.
His argument is that the New Zealand Wars and their legacy are of central significance to understanding modern-day New Zealand. It was definitely a great opportunity for students to hear from a professional historian and hopefully it planted a seed about engaging with the country’s past.
