What is taught in today's schools?

Ngunguru School has a curriculum through which children learn

  • to talk, listen, read and write efficiently
  • to master mathematical ideas and skills with a particular emphasis on Numeracy.
  • to appreciate their heritage and the unique natural world they live in
  • to express themselves through drama, art and music
  • to by physically fit and to understand some important things about good health

Underlying all of this is the important fact that the school's programme is most likely to be successful when it builds on and is supported by home experiences. The most effective curriculum is the one in which parents and teachers work together as partners.

Please visit the curriculum section of our website for more information.
