This programme is for the following year groups: Years 7–8, Year 9–13

Learn about New Zealand’s contribution to World War II on land, sea, air, and at home. Identify the political forces that led to war being declared and how New Zealand became involved, as well as the different technologies and equipment used within the conflict.

Situated in our World War II Hall of Memories, this session encourages students to think critically while considering the function and changing role of memorials in our communities today.
