Programmes at Matarau School are based on the New Zealand Curriculum.
The vision, principles and values expressed in this document are important to us and help lay the foundation of a rich and diverse curriculum.
In fact we like the New Zealand Curriculum so much that we encourage you to take a closer look
Our Cambridge programme will be used to augment the New Zealand Curriculum by providing structure and content which is consistent, coherent and purposeful. This will occur within a wider curriculum framework which acknowledges and values …
… student enquiry
… authenticity of content and process
… self-directed learning
… critical thinking
… goal setting
… personal responsibility
… respect for difference
… pursuit of personal bests
In summary, our Cambridge programme allows us to combine the best of both worlds.
