Kāpiti Coast District Council has released a civics education initiative for teachers and students called "Taking Action in My Community".
The initiative is a 12 lesson teaching programme for Primary School students in years seven and eight.
The programme is easy to follow, aligns with the new curriculum and is lots of fun!
Taking Action in My Commmunity helps students learn about Council's activities, how decisions are made, and encourage students to develop their own campaigns for change - democracy in action!
The resource contains three case studies and others will be provided from time to time on this website.
