Our Learning

There are four Future-Focussed themes in the NZ Curriculum -Sustainability, Citizenship, Enterprise and Globalisation. They form the basis for our study themes.

For each of the focus themes a programme is developed that covers the 6 years at Otonga School. NZ curriculum is levelled into 2-year blocks of learning so that Yr 1 & 2 =Level One, Year 3 & 4 =level Two, Yr 5 & 6 = level 3. 

We have four core values which are integrated each term: Responsibility, Cooperation, respect and excellence through perseverance.

We also study a particular life skill each term: Participating and Contributing, Managing Self, Thinking skills, Relating to Others
