dc.description.abstract The Waihi Strike occurred on November, 12th 2012, 100 years ago next year. This strike, involving almost all the 1500 workers at the mine, was a pivotal event in New Zealand’s political history. It coincided with the rise to power of Massey's Reform government, which marked the end of a long era of Liberal politics. The strike also resulted in the death of striker Fred Evans, still perhaps the greatest martyr of the New Zealand labour movement. Strike leaders Bob Semple, Peter Fraser, Bill Parry and Tim Armstrong went on to form the New Zealand Labour Party to advance workers’ interests in Parliament. Waihi and its surrounding have other histories as well. It is the site of the international multinational company Newmont Mining, the centre of huge agricultural industry, in horticulture and dairy, as well as being sited at the base of the Coromandel Peninsula. The occasion of the strike’s centenary provides an opportunity to pull together a number of themes in History of Education. These include the history of education per se, history as curriculum, curriculum history, curriculum as historically created, place-based curriculum, and importantly curriculum as something that is actively created by teachers. en
