The first scholarship workshop will be held on Wednesday 12 June – more information in this will be provided to member schools soon.
Once subscriptions have been received (and the survey completed) you will receive notification from the AGTA website that you can now access all parts of the website and you will be able to contribute to all the geography discussions.
You will be given a password that has been randomly generated, use this to login the first time then we suggest that you change your password. We will NOT know what the randomly generated password is – good idea to choose something everyone in your department can access. The user name will be the name you have given in the survey.
So get those subscriptions in. 🙂
Mary and the committee…..
We hope that this new website will be a very useful site for you to use – with plenty of new ideas, activities, resources and links to all sorts of things geographical.
Mary Robinson (AGTA Chairperson)
Maybe something interesting to show your students – and get them thinking.

Important Message to school groups going to Muriwai – Auckland Council requires school groups to book trips in advance.
Wondering how your students work was marked?
In 2012, external assessment for level 1 and 2 was carried out using Grade Score Marking. To coincide with the implementation of the revised achievement standards. All external revised achievement standards have been written with a single outcome to allow aggregation of assessment evidence from across an examination paper.
