SPCA's Resources for Schools have been designed for primary and intermediate school teachers looking for innovative resources that provide real life, meaningful contexts for teaching and learning with the New Zealand Curriculum. 

If you’d like to connect with like-minded kaiako and educators, get inspiration, gain support from others, and share what your tamariki have created and learnt, why not join our private Facebook group SPCA NZ Education Community.

To celebrate Te Wiki o te Reo Māori, we’re excited to share the instructional reader Rupert, Porohita Poroporo me te Pere, by John Carr, retold in te reo Māori by Nikora Ngaropo.

The story is about Rupert, Room Four’s goldfish. He lives alone in a small bowl, has no plants to nibble, and has nothing to explore or enrich his day. One student decides it’s time to do something to help Rupert.
