Curriculum and Our Learning Philosophy

At TPS we offer a broad curriculum, consisting of the core subjects (reading, writing, maths) and noncore subjects using an inquiry process (science, technology, health and physical education and the arts).  We have a strong tradition of sporting endeavour as well as  Education Outside of the classroom (EOTC).  We offer a wide range of extracurricular programmes, which include: music, dance, drama, art, sports, language, STEM and cultural activities. Students can choose to participate in a wide range of learning opportunities to develop their passions and interests.

With the removal of the National Standards and Ngā Whanaketanga Rumaki Māori last year, the Ministry of Education is working with the sector, students, parents, whānau, iwi and communities to focus on progress and achievement across the breadth of the National Curriculum.


At present, Reading, Writing, and Maths are measured against the NZ Curriculum Levels.  In line with National Administration Guidelines, TPS reports twice yearly against these levels, assessing learners progress as being AT Expectation, BELOW expectation or ABOVE expectation.
