Principles

There are several principles in the front of the curriculum that have been looked at in a recent study done by ERO. They vary in levels of how they are manifested in school curriculum, but apparently at the bottom of the list is the Treaty of Waitangi.
This is the comment on Morning Report this morning "Schools have consigned the Treaty of Waitangi to the bottom of a list of key priorities they are obliged to observe..." At least this is how National Radio have interpreted the ERO findings into the implementation of NZC.
Here's a link to the actual news report. It's 2′51″ so not a big ask to listen to.
Question:
What have you done to address this principle in your school? Can you give the rest of us some ideas about how you have embedded this in your school curriculum - or how it's being thought about at least?

Dr Jenny Poskitt

Here is a link to the googledoc version of your collaborative notes from Jenny's session. Thanks for the contributions, it is clear that people got a lot out of the day.
I've also put up a word version so that people who have trouble with GD can download a copy. I'll update this as more work is done on the GD version.
