Our Learning

At St Ignatius Catholic School our curriculum is driven by our vision: 

Learners will live and celebrate our Catholic faith, follow our values, and become actively engaged, connected lifelong learners.


“Key competencies are the capabilities that people have, and need to develop, to live and learn today and in the future.”  http://keycompetencies.tki.org.nz/What-are-KCs

In the NZ Curriculum there are 5 Key Competencies:

  • Thinking
  • Using language, symbols, and text
  • Managing self
  • Relating to others
  • Participating & Contributing

Our curriculum is concept based driven by big ideas. The goal for all our children is to become innovative learners with a solid base in literacy and numeracy.
