Cambridge and the NZ Curriculum 2017-04-21T22:41:15+12:00

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-management

…  self-directed learning

… critical thinking

…  goal setting

…  personal responsibility

…  teamwork

…  respect for difference

…  pursuit of personal bests 

In summary, our Cambridge programme allows us to combine the best of both worlds.
