The Holocaust: we look at the event that shocked the world and continues to defy belief. How did Hitler come to power and how has this event shaped the world we live in today?
Concept 4: Te Tiriti o Waitangi - Learn about the most important document in NZ History. How did our ancestors arrive in NZ and why did there need to be a treaty? We will learn about how the treaty has affected the lives of all NZ'ers over the past 180 years.
