Our Curriculum

The New Zealand Curriculum sets the framework for learning and teaching in New Zealand schools. The New Zealand Curriculum allows each school the scope and provision to design their own ‘local curriculum’ reflective of their school, pedagogy and community.

The aims and aspirations of the curriculum is to develop amongst our learners the competencies and skills to be active, confident, connected, life long learners.

Our curriculum embodies these principles and aims to provide the best possible learning experiences for our children.

At the centre of our curriculum are the students, who are partners in designing the curriculum with us. Curriculum design is an ever evolving and adapting process, as programmes and areas are reviewed and professional learning informs teaching and learning.
