We are living in exponential times. The digital revolution, globalisation and unprecedented population growth has meant that the world we live in has shifted drastically – and will continue to shift in the foreseeable future.
As such no student in the history of education has needed to be like today’s modern learner. Students need to be able to think and work creatively in both digital and non-digital environments to develop unique skills and solutions. They need the ability to think and work analytically without instruction or supervision, as well as collaborate effectively as part of a team.
Here at Whangarei Primary School it is our vision to provide a programme of learning that emphasises the development of these skills within the context of the New Zealand National Curriculum. Our aim is to ensure that our young people equipped to become life-long learners, well prepared for the exponential times that they are living in.
