The school follows the National Curriculum objectives as set out by the Ministry of Education, which state the learning outcomes to be achieved by all students across the essential learning areas.
The essential learning areas are:
Science and the Environment
Physical and Personal Development
In addition, extension and enrichment classes have been established to assist children who need further opportunities.
Local Curriculum Initiatives
Our local curriculum contains programme initiatives developed by the school. It aims to promote further education opportunities for our pupils and is sustained through our own funding.
Information and Communication (ICT) studies are available throughout the school. This is a feature of our school and we currently enjoy a ‘Site-School’ status with Renaissance Industries. Of particular note is our renown EarthEd programme. This runs from Year’s 1-8 and installs in our students the essential skills and knowledge to be kaitiaki (guardians) of our unique aquatic and bush environment.
Year 4, 5,6,7 & 8 pupils participate in:
Regional School Sports Days
Snorkel and Scuba Dive Experiences
Hillary Outdoors Camp
Language classes are available for Year 5-8 pupils
