10,000 students take part in CensusAtSchool!

Kia ora koutou,

We have just hit the first 10,000 students taking part in CensusAtSchool! Thank you so much for getting involved! We’ll be releasing the national database for sampling from shortly.

The questionnaire is open all year. We encourage you to take part as soon as possible, but whenever it suits you best is fine.

With the national census currently taking place, CensusAtSchool is a great complementary topical activity.

Thanks to Kelly Dawe, Head of Mathematics at Craighead Diocesan School for sharing these photos of her Year 10 maths class taking part in CensusAtSchool.

Unsure when you can take part?
Any time during school hours from Monday – it doesn’t need to be next week if it’s not convenient. The survey is open all year.

Need help preparing?
Please ensure that you have read the essential Teacher’s Guide. All the equipment needed to take part successfully with your students is included in it.

Want to take part over multiple days?
You can divide the activity into two sessions. Use the first session to take the measurements and fill in your data cards. Use the second session to fill in the survey online. The survey itself needs to be completed in one sitting by a student. However, different students from your class can fill it in on different days, for example if you have limited devices or some students are away.

Have another question?
Reply to this email and we’ll get right back to you! Or you can call Rachel Cunliffe on (027) 383-3746.

Ngā mihi nui,
