Enriching Curriculum Through Culture in New Zealand
Culture and education are the two moving forces of the development of any country. Educating generations, we prepare intelligent and skilled people who are going to move the country forward, towards prosperity and welfare. But transferring knowledge of a country’s heritage and culture is of equal value for reaching the aforementioned goal.
