This report looks at how Year 9 students experience civic and citizenship education in the school curriculum, and the opportunities they have to develop citizenship competencies through participating and contributing to various aspects of school life. This includes co-curricular activities, which are those undertaken in the school environment but beyond formal classroom teaching and learning.It also includes decision-making about how things
happen in their school. The report also looks at the role of home and the community.
This is the fourth in a series of reports drawn from the International Civic and Citizenship Education Study (ICCS), which was undertaken in New Zealand in 2008.
