What is a localised curriculum about?
🌱 It is our values, our people, our place, our purpose 🌳
Our localised curriculum is designed to bring ākonga learning to life. It encompases whānau priorities and community aspirations for our tamariki realises our Omakere Values, and envisions the Enviroschool Principles that are our foundation - our purpose.
Our whānau, community, and the students themselves have shared their voice to identify their strengths, interests, and needs. The localised curriculum links our vision "A vibrant, healthy school community where children are confident and resilient, life long learners' to our Graduate Profile. Our Graduate profile will be unveiled at the start of 2023 and focuses on progression for a purpose.

Our Strategic Plan expresses how our localised curriculum underpins and interweaves all teaching and learning at Omakere School. Our localised curriculum embeds our vision and values and realises the Enviroschool Principles - Empowerment, Sustainability, Perspectives, and Diversity.
The New Zealand Curriculum is a clear statement of what is deemed as important in education. This starting point creates a vision of our young people as lifelong learners who are confident, creative, connected, and actively involved, and includes a clear set of principles on which to base curriculum decision making.
