CURRICULUM

The vision in the New Zealand Curriculum "is for young people":

  • who will be creative, energetic and enterprising

  • who will seize the opportunities offered by new knowledge and technologies to secure a sustainable social, cultural, economic and environmental future for our country

  • who will work to create an Aotearoa New Zealand in which Maori and Pakeha recognise each other as full treaty partners, and in which all cultures are valued for the contributions they bring

  • who, in their school years, will continue to develop the values, knowledge and competencies that will enable them to live full and satisfying lives

  • who will be confident, connected, actively involved and lifelong learners."

As an important part of fulfilling this mission, and realising the vision, we are pleased to be able to offer you an extensive range of subjects.
