Year 13 history seminar series

In 2010 and 2011 The Ministry for Culture and Heritage and the Wellington Area History Teachers' Association organised a series of seminars aimed at Year 13 History NCEA 3 and Scholarship students. Each seminar was held at 4-5pm at the Ministry for Culture and Heritage, 155 The Terrace, Radio New Zealand House, Wellington. All NCEA 3 history students and teachers were welcome. After each seminar was presented we added any related resources to this page.
