At St Kevin’s College we are extremely proud of our diverse and effective curriculum that provides excellent learning opportunities for all students attending St Kevin’s’ College. Our curriculum is designed to give every student the opportunity to achieve academics success and at the same time experience a broad, well rounded education.
The St Kevin’s College curriculum provides a unique combination of traditional academic programmes alongside innovative programmes that provide the flexibility for students to make choices about the directions for their learning, ensuring their success and enabling them to be exposed to the learning areas that they are excited about.
Within each curriculum area teachers that are passionate about their subject and the success of their students are key to the successful delivery of our programmes. Our timetable is also structured to allow most senior option classes to number approximately 20 students. This enables a level of student- teacher interaction that is the envy of many other schools.
Our junior curriculum is based around the eight learning areas of the New Zealand Curriculum (in bold below); that is English, Mathematics and Statistics, Science, Social Sciences, The Arts, Learning Languages, Technology and Physical Education and Health, as well as Religious Studies. Within these learning areas students will experience a wide range of topics. Some examples of these topics are shown below the leaning areas.
