CURRICULUM

All students access the essential learning areas of the New Zealand curriculum at their level and pace, and receive instruction in: English, Mathematics and Statistics, The Arts, Health and Physical Education, Social Sciences, Technology, Science, and Learning Languages.

The New Zealand Curriculum identifies five key competencies that are crucial not only for learning, but also for successfully navigating everyday life. The key competencies are: thinking, using language, symbols, and texts, managing self, relating to others, and participating and contributing. We weave the development of these competencies into the teaching of all learning areas. We encourage positive behaviour and provide positive reinforcement in the classroom and playground.
