Teachers' Lounge - It Makes Finding Learning Resources Easy!
Teachers' Lounge NZ is a new website dedicated to saving you time while planning. It's a library catalogue for learning resources, so instead of searching the whole world wide web for relevant resources, you can select the NZ Curriculum subject, strand or achievement objective that you are working on and instantly find lesson plans, worksheets, games, videos and other resources related to that area, whether from Twinkl, Youtube, Khan Academy, or any of the thousands of other sites out there.
While we're doing our best to catalogue resources, we need you to help! Let us know about the amazing resources you use, whether free or paid, and help us to catalogue them and make them easier for other teachers to find.

Te Rito Toi www.teritotoi.org supports teachers and principals to return to school following or during crisis. The site includes classroom support through detailed lesson plans developed and trialled by teacher-researchers to match situations in Aotearoa New Zealand schools created by COVID 19.
Te Rito Toi advocates for the arts as the heart of classroom activity in troubling times. The site is appropriate for all teachers regardless of experience teaching in/through the Arts. Soon it will offer a space to share your work in our new online gallery space.
National Schools Pride Week 2020
Celebrating Pride in every school | Whakanuia te uenuku ki ia kura
We’re excited to launch InsideOUT’s first annual National Schools Pride Week campaign, with a range of activities that schools, rainbow diversity groups, students and staff can get involved with in their school!
We hope that by creating opportunities to celebrate and affirm rainbow identities through this campaign we can help reduce the experiences of bullying and distress many of our rainbow rangatahi face, and give these young people an increased sense of belonging in their school communities.
