Education at Pukeahu
Visiting Pukeahu National War Memorial Park is a time to reflect, but also to learn. A visit to the park is an essential experience for schools investigating themes relating to New Zealand's military history and concepts relating to national identity, expressions of citizenship and commemoration.
