Our Curriculum

Rangi Ruru follows the New Zealand Curriculum, which specifies eight learning areas; English, The Arts, Health and Physical Education, Languages, Mathematics and Statistics, Science, Social Sciences and Technology.

The learning associated with each area is part of a broad, general education and lays a foundation for later specialisation. As with the key competencies, this learning is both end and means; valuable in itself and valuable for the pathways it opens to other learning.

While the learning areas are presented as distinct, this does not limit the ways in which we can structure the learning experiences offered to students. All learning should make use of the natural connections that exist between learning areas and that link learning areas to the values and key competencies.
