Capabilities for living and lifelong learning
These key competencies are developed by all members of our learning community across all learning disciplines.
Thinking skills are a major part of the learning. Thinking such as Decision-making thinking and generating new ideas are an integral part of Inquiry.
Critical thinking is paramount in activities such as News board, Reading and Inquiry.
Language, symbols and texts are foundation blocks for all learning and extend through all disciplines. We work to make all students competent users of texts and symbols
so that they can understand, interpret, respond and use ICT effectively.
“Students who manage themselves are enterprising, resourceful, reliable and resilient.” (NZ Curriculum).
Inquiry demands that students make decisions about their actions as a result of inquiry and carry them out.
Relating to others includes the ability to listen actively and recognise different views. Inquiry requires students to negotiate the context and the action. It demands a sharing
of ideas, co-operation and an awareness of the feelings and actions of others.
Inquiry requires students to use their learning to improve the world. As a result, students become actively involved in communities. They participate in and contribute towards
the social, cultural, physical and economic environments they encounter in their learning.
