KingsWay School is an integrated non-denominational school of special Christian Character. Our KingsWay Curriculum aligns KingsWay School’s Special Character and unique context with the intent of the New Zealand National Curriculum published in 2008. Our curriculum document is a clear statement of what we deem important in education at KingsWay School.The aim of the curriculum is to provide quality educational programmes built on the developmental needs of the students. It encourages students to be confident, active problem solvers who are engaged in the learning process. It encourages students to be connected to God and others.The curriculum provides students with experiences that enhance and develop their personal and interpersonal skills, spiritual attitudes and values across the learning areas.
Our Special Character permeates all that we do. All teaching is designed to be implemented through a Biblical Worldview and is outworked through our principles, values and key competencies.Students also participate in daily morning devotional times based around the Positive Action Bible Curriculum. A key emphasis of this resource is to establish students in the Word of God so that they can begin to find answers for themselves. It presents students with the kinds of material that will help them go beyond factual knowledge of the Scriptures to growing in wisdom and understanding. A strong emphasis is placed on character development with the goal of allowing the Holy Spirit to work in the lives of the students conforming them to the image of Jesus Christ (Romans 8:29).
The NZ Curriculum consists of 8 Learning Areas: Mathematics and Statistics, English, Social Sciences, Technology, Health and Physical Education, The Arts, Science and Languages.
