We need your feedback on the DRAFT Education Renewal Recovery Programme for Christchurch
We are acutely aware the impact of the decisions we make in the wake of the traumatic events of 2010 and 2011 will be felt not only by today’s children, but by future generations.
And not just by individuals, but by the community.
If we can reshape educational opportunities to engage the full diversity of our learners, then we will maximise our human potential, give greater Christchurch a distinctive set of advantages – social, cultural, and economic – to ensure greater prosperity through education.
The draft Education Renewal Recovery Programme describes the context and the issues facing the education network – from early childhood through schooling, tertiary and international education – in the wake of the earthquakes, and will guide the future direction of education in greater Christchurch.
It synthesises a wealth of feedback, suggests directions, and asks: are these the directions we want our city and surrounding districts to take?
It also considers how we go about guiding the process of renewal.
We invite you to read the draft document and give us your comments.
We want to know if what we are proposing is heading in the right direction. We need to hear from you by 31 May 2012.
Once approved, the draft Education Renewal Recovery Programme will complement and contribute to the Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Authority’s Recovery Strategy for greater Christchurch.
Resource material is also available to support wider group discussions, helping teachers engage children and young people. This is where you can also read more about the situation we find ourselves in.

Proposal 3.3: To implement a digital strategy for learning in greater Christchurch
To be achieved by:
- ensuring that schools in greater Christchurch are among the first to access ultra-fast broadband, and that investment in ICT infrastructure allows them to maximise its use
- supporting the Greater Christchurch Schools Network (GCSN) so that it can grow the capability of teachers and communities and develop curriculum content
- giving schools greater access to training in e-learning and the use of ICT
What will it take for greater Christchurch to lead New Zealand in the use of ICT infrastructure and digital technologies in ways that advantage learners?
