Ecological Condition and Use of Greenspaces in New Zealand Primary Schools

Other New Zealand (nationwide)

Posted: 17 May 2021
Notice reference #: 1HAKms

Greenspaces in primary schools are fixed spaces, and in the growing urban world are becoming more and more vital for providing a connection with nature that is otherwise decreasing. The condition and use of these spaces can help to provide information about better utilising the spaces for the benefit of students, staff, and the wider community. 

I am a MSc student at the University of Auckland studying the ecological condition and use of greenspaces in New Zealand primary schools. If you are a current primary school teacher (Y1–6) I am interested in your response even if your school does not have extensive greenspaces. Participation is entirely voluntary.

Please visit ( to participate in our on-line survey. It should take approximately 15 to 20 minutes to complete.

There is an opportunity to go into a prize draw for one of three $50 prezzy cards.

If you would like more information about this project or have questions, please get in touch with me ( or visit our webpage
