Martinborough School Curriculum Design 2015 onwards

Martinborough School has reviewed the previous annual curriculum documents and designed this document for 2015 onwards. This is to meet the changing and diverse needs of the students and to link in our values and curriculum into our vision.

Our Purpose

  • High Expectations
  • Treaty of Waitangi
  • Cultural Diversity

  • Learning to Learn
  • Community Engagement

“The students should be at the centre of teaching and learning, asserting that they should experience a curriculum that engages and challenges them, is forward-looking and inclusive, and affirms NZ unique identity. “

(NZ Curriculum, 2007:Page 9)
