Term One 
You will complete research on a significant event from World War 1, in which New Zealanders were involved. We will also study the Gallipoli Campaign in detail to understand why it is so significant to New Zealanders. 

Term Two Cold War: A period of tension and conflict between the world’s two super-powers. We will examine the use of nuclear weapons and the event that brought the world to the brink of nuclear war. 

Term Three The 1981 Springbok Tour: No other event has divided New Zealander’s quite like this one. We examine why this tour was so divisive and what implications this tour has had on New Zealand and the world.
