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.

Suzy Cato, one of NZ’s leading children’s media personalities and a fantastic SPCA Ambassador, has sat down to read one of our instructional readers, Storm Gets a New Home. Have your learners join Suzy here to enjoy the story on her YouTube series, Suzy’s Book Corner: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pMpzKmTHxg0

Your school was gifted sets of these instructional readers, but there’s a high likelihood some have gone missing (or been chewed by a dog)! If you want to restock your collection, now’s your chance! From now until Thu 29 June, you can receive 20% off our English and te reo Māori sets of the Companion and Farmed Animals series when buying online - just apply the code Suzy20 at checkout. Head to https://readers.spcaeducation.org.nz/ to purchase copies for you or your school.


During Term 3, SPCA are offering a regional specific, interactive learning experience for classroom students in Waikato. 

These webinars are intended for primary and intermediate students and are a great way for young ākonga to learn about the role SPCA plays in their community, what animals need to be happy and healthy, and how they can help animals in their community.
