Learning resources for the Freds of the future

Our Education Pack provides engaging learning opportunities based on the story of Fred and the incredible work of The Foundation

Learning resources for the Freds of the future

Guided by the refreshed progression-focused NZ curriculum, we have created an Education Pack tailored for years 5/6, 7/8 and 9/10. 

Each downloadable pack contains lessons that enable students to deepen their understanding of the big ideas (understand), as they explore the context (know), using critical practices (do). Lessons are delivered in PowerPoint, with instructions for the teacher found in the notes section. It also comes with a lesson plan overview detailing the contents of the modules and what learning outcomes students can expect to achieve.

This Education Pack is particularly well suited to Social Sciences and can be taught on-line or via print-outs.

Modules include teaching on:

  • What challenges do some people face in our world?
  • Who was Fred Hollows? And what is his legacy?
  • Social Action, in Action! Analysing Decisions and taking Social Action
  • What challenges do some people face in our world? And what are the consequences of this?
  • Identifying Values and Perspectives

Students will learn about:

  • Basic anatomy of the eyes and the main causes of blindness and eye disease.
  • Consequences of the lack of access to eye health services
  • Visual impairment and how it impacts women.
  • Diabetes and the link with visual impairment
  • The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals

We believe the school pack will open a wide variety of relevant topics for students and we hope you enjoy using this new resource. Feedback is welcomed.

Additionally, our fundraising page has heaps of ideas for the wonderful students who get out there and raise money for the needlessly blind in the Pacific.
