The New Zealand Curriculum
The way children are taught and supported to learn, are important factors influencing children’s development and achievement at school.
What children are surrounded with are engaging authentic learning that meet the students needs as well as national and local requirements.
The Key Competencies (managing self, relating to others, participating and contributing, thinking, understanding text and symbols) also form an integral part of our teaching and learning programmes.
Assessment practices at Rapaura School recognise that all children can make progress. In order to encourage and motivate, considerable emphasis is given to recognising the progress being made by each child.
Catering for a variety of learning styles, higher order thinking skills, information literacy and inquiry learning help us prepare our Rapaura students for life-long learning.
