Education Act Changes

The new legislation comes into effect on 19 May 2017.

We have created an overview of these changes.


NZSTA will continue to update you with factsheets, newsletters and through our website.

NZSTA provides member boards with a wide range of information through STAnews which is distributed to all member boards monthly (10 issues each year). STAnews includes articles with a national interest or focus. 

In addition to STAnews, regional newsletters are distributed quarterly – once each school term. These newsletters have a local focus, are produced by the regional executives, and emailed to member boards within each region.

STAnews and regional newsletters are a member-only benefit and are therefore accessible on the website only by member boards.
