I remember when Sir Ken Robinson first gave his Ted talk in 2004 and I remember working with the Board of the school at the time about the importance of a wide curriculum with emphasis on creativity, the arts and the spread of the opportunities for the children. It made a real impact and over time that schools evolution reflected Sir Ken’s thesis.
Recently he spoke to Wallace Chapman on Radio New Zealand Sunday programme and once again he explains the importance or providing a curriculum that advocates variety and difference and one that caters for the wide diversity of children at each school.
