Junior students select a learning hub for each year. Our Junior curriculum starts from the big ideas and enduring understandings that are central to us as human beings, a society and a global world.
Over two years, curriculum study unpacks the concepts and critical thinking around Change, Identity, Social Justice, Sustainability, Belonging, Curiosity, Creativity and Survival. Learning combines cross-curricular understandings with specialist knowledge and skills.
All students continue to develop Literacy, Numeracy, Science and Physical Education skills. In addition, students take Social Sciences, Performing Arts and Technology and all Year 9 learn Te Reo Māori.
During their time in the junior school, students have opportunity to choose from a range of option areas, which can vary from year to year. These options may include: Visual Arts, High Performance Sport, Samoan, Business Studies, Spanish, Music and Drama.
