Curriculum and teaching that engages
Field trips, visiting speakers, national and international competitions, access to technology and e-learning, and excellent teaching resources all enhance the learning experiences of our girls. Every opportunity is taken to give students real-world experiences and hands-on tasks as part of their learning.
Staff expect all students to extend themselves to reach their full potential, in an environment of healthy challenges.
The learning needs of gifted and talented students are accounted for in personalised advanced learning programmes, and elite senior academic students are invited to join the Scholars mentoring programme.
Our Learning Support Team, whose role is to meet the remedial learning needs, especially in literacy and numeracy, support the learning extension needs of individual students.
At each level girls are mentored through course selection, goal setting, learning needs, time management and study skills.
All students follow a programme of religious studies and physical education and health as these elements are at the core of educating the whole student at Waikato Diocesan School for Girls.
