NZMM 2023 Resources

May 15th 2023
We have amazing resources ready for you to use in the classroom!


  • "Give it a Whirl - The NZ On Screen website is a great resource for revisiting great TV and film moments from our past, and the library is slowly building. A recent addition is 'Give It A Whirl', a six-part documentary that was originally screened in 2003. It recounts the history of rock 'n' roll in Aotearoa and features such greats as Johnny Cooper, Tim Finn, and Ray Columbus. We have a 4 page schools resource that will be available to use alongside the relevant episodes. "
