Years 1-10

Learning in years 1-10 is guided by Te Ara Pounamu and incorporates the key competencies and eight learning areas of The New Zealand Curriculum. From 2024, we will offer the refreshed learning areas of Te Mātaiaho (The Refreshed New Zealand Curriculum), as they are published.

Ākonga are allocated a kaimanaaki (learning advisor) who works closely with the ākonga and their whānau to develop a personalised learning plan that values their identity, language and culture, and is based on their interests, abilities and learning needs. The kaimanaaki is also the kaiako (teacher) for most, if not all, of the learning programme for year 1-10 ākonga.

The process of developing a personalised learning plan is supported by My Korowai. My Korowai guides ākonga to share, develop and reflect on their learning, interests and goals within My Te Kura.

Personalised learning plans may include entirely asynchronous learning experiences, or a mixture of asynchronous and synchronous learning experiences. We encourage all ākonga where practicable to connect with their learning community by attending face-to-face or online Huinga Ako (Advisory).
