In our New Zealand Curriculum it states that community engagement is an essential component of student learning:
The curriculum has meaning for students, connects with their wider lives, and engages the support of their families, whānau, and communities.
At Hingaia Peninsula school we aim to deliver a curriculum that is meaningful, relevant, and connected to students' lives and community. For us, it is about establishing strong home-school partnerships where parents, whānau, and communities are involved and supporting students' learning.
The following pages will provide information about how you can continue to support your child(ren)’s learning at home as well as links to websites that can support your child to continue their learning at home.
Please note, if you have any specific questions or concerns regarding your child's learning and achievement we would encourage you to make an appointment as soon as possible to discuss these queries with your child’s whānau teacher in the first instance.
