Schools on the National Education Network

A small number of New Zealand schools are connected to the National Education Network (NEN).
To find out if you are connected, go to or speak to your IT department.

These schools have access to the high speed KAREN network which if they have the muticasting functionality enabled, will allow them to receive the broadcasts directly through the internet with no problems of signal delay etc that schools on a normal broadband connection would experience.

Schools wishing to participate in this way should contact Robert Hamilton at
For these schools, a web address will be sent on the day of the broadcast for connection.
