At Reremoana School we approach learning and teaching in an innovative, collaborative way.

As our world evolves, education too is changing. For many of us, where our students learn, what they learn and how they learn is very different from what we experienced at school. 

We need our young people to be confident, creative, connected and actively involved life-long learners as they navigate our ever-changing world. We need an education system that supports the development of values, knowledge and competencies, and sets them up to do well in the world.

New Zealand Curriculum

NZ has a national curriculum that guides what your child learns at school. Your child will develop a range of values and key competencies, or capabilities, that they need to succeed in life. These are all woven into the teaching of learning areas, or subjects. At Reremoana School students develop these competencies through our Language of Learning.

The 8 learning areas in the NZC are English, the arts, health and physical education, learning languages, mathematics and statistics, science, social sciences and technology. Where possible, curriculum areas are authentically integrated to enable our learners to connect and collaborate.

Digital technologies are an important part of your child's world. Your child uses them to connect with each other, to learn new skills and pursue their interests further than has ever been possible. They also offer new opportunities for teachers and leaders, and new ways for families to contribute to their child's learning.

At Reremoana we invite and encourage all Year 4 - 8 students, as part of our Bring Your Own Device programme, to purchase and bring a Chromebook to school.

Language of Learning

Reremoana School’s unique Language of Learning personalises our implementation of the Key Competencies, and is central to our Local Curriculum: It embodies  the capabilities people have, and need to develop, to live and learn today and in the future, 

Like the Key Competencies, our  Language of Learning:

  • encompasses  knowledge, skills, attitudes, and values.
  • work together and influence each other.
  • is demonstrated in performance – and  requires action.
  • Is complex and changing – looks different in different contexts.

The Language of Learning relates to all other aspects of our local curriculum

Our Learning Model reflects the crucial relationship Learning to Learn (Understanding the process of learning and gaining knowledge; knowing what to do with this learning, and doing it!) and Learning Together (Learning with and from each other in a supportive and positive way in a range of contexts).

Be Respectful

School is a place for learning, growing and succeeding with behaviour and social skills. 

At Reremoana School an important part of our local curriculum is our Language of Learning. Be Respectful is one of the 6 strands of our Language of Learning.  

Being respectful is how we organise our social curriculum. Teaching about wellbeing, social skills and behaviour through how we can respect ourselves, others and the environment.

We use the Ministry of Education Positive Behaviour 4 Learning framework to organise this curriculum and the evidence based strategies that are in the framework to respond to behavioural incidents

PB4L takes the approach that opportunities for learning and achievement increase if:

  • the school environment is positive and supportive
  • expectations are consistently clear
  • students are consistently taught desired behaviours
  • students are consistently acknowledged for desired behaviours and undesirable behaviours are responded to in a fair and equitable way.


Collaborative Practice

At Reremoana School we are organised into hubs rather than single teacher classrooms which supports teachers and students to learn and teach collaboratively.  Having teachers teaching collaboratively means we can be more flexible in order to teach more specifically to each student’s needs.  Each hub has two teachers who work together to meet the learning, social and emotional needs of the students in hub. 

Within the hub, each student is allocated a kaitiaki (guardian) teacher.  Sometimes students learn together as a hub, sometimes in a kaitiaki group and other times in smaller groups based on need, ability or interest.  Your child’s kaitiaki teacher is your first contact person for any questions or concerns about your child.
