‘InspiredbyU’ is a website designed to acknowledge the life-long impact that educators have on people’s lives.

‘InspiredbyU’ is being launched as part of the inaugural Festivals of Education (to be held in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch from March 21). Using a virtual postcard, thousands of New Zealanders will have the opportunity to share the story of the person that had the biggest impact on their lives.

Prime Minister John Key and Minister of Education Hekia Parata made the first contributions to the website by writing a postcard to their former teachers.

Members of the public are invited to create their own digital postcards, sharing their story on this site.
