NZQA Scholarship in Religious Studies is now available. Two or three years ago LAC was at the forefront of getting Religious Studies to be made available at this level. A big thank you to all the work that Mrs Aiono and others did for this to happen. Mrs Aiono is also a member of the Religious Studies Teacher Association of Aotearoa New Zealand (RSTAANZ).
A number of years ago Mr Stan Walsh, who was the AP at LAC at the time, was one of the lead writers of the original NCEA achievement standards. So there is a significant tradition of LAC being a significant influence in the teaching of Religious Studies in New Zealand. Mr Walsh was excited to hear of this next step forward when the good news was shared with him recently.
