Bream Head Education Resource aims to help schools and community groups to see that the Bream Head Scenic Reserve is an integral and important part of their environment, and to become part of the Reserve’s restoration action.

To ensure its functionality in the classroom, the Resource also links to the New Zealand Curriculum, Te Marautanga o Aotearoa (Maori Curriculum), Education for Sustainability Guidelines and the Ministry of Education Guidelines for Environmental Education in New Zealand Schools.

The teaching programme features introductory PowerPoint presentations, New Zealand Curriculum links, teaching and learning activities, activity sheets, a suggested Inquiry Learning process programme, Bream Head photographs, an online resource bank, a Te Reo Maori glossary, information links and community action ideas.

Hard copies and supporting information kit available. For further information email

An education programme has been the ambition of Trust Board members for many years, and they now look forward to the increased community participation, enthusiasm and action it will bring.

Refining NZ, Northland Regional Council and the Educational sub-committee of the Trust have been instrumental in developing and implementing this resource.
