Our Learning


Our students will experience quality teaching and learning programmes throughout the school with an emphasis on literacy and numeracy in Years 1-8.



​Our student’s achievement will be enhanced by promoting effective teachers learning about their teaching and assessment practice, considering current research in relation to the New Zealand Curriculum.



Our students will have the voice and choice in what they learn. Our curriculum presents a coherent and holistic picture to the students based on their interests.



Our students will know what it looks like to practice RESPECT in our School, Playcentre and community and ensure our  Health Promoting School objectives that meet - their emotional, social, physical and spiritual needs are an integral part of our FLAME Values.



Our students will have their learning needs met through the community, parents/caregivers and staff engaging in and exploring the implications of the curriculum through the focused use of resources, (personnel, financial, property).
