Years 1-6

The early years at Whangamata Area School focus on building capacity to learn through positive relationships and experiences, as well as securing key foundational skills in Literacy, Numeracy, Digital Technologies, the Sciences, Arts, and Physical Education.

Our early years curriculum makes the most of our local environment and acknowledges the natural curiosity of young people and their ability to learn through play and exploration. Students are also encouraged to develop cultural awareness through Te Reo and Te Ao Maori, and Kapa Haka skills.

The establishment and maintenance of positive, powerful, and effective relationships with the families and Whanau of our students is paramount in these key developmental years.


School
Transition

New Entrants

Transitioning from home or an ECE Centre to school when your child turns 5 is very important for you and your child to settle into what can be a very new or foreign environment. We hope to make this as smooth as we can.

If your child attends one of the local ECE providers they will schedule their own visits with us, however you are more than welcome to schedule your own visits as well. If you would like to organise a visit please email the New Entrant teacher, Paul Hughes, on: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
