Teaching and Learning
At Cardinal McKeefry School we teach the New Zealand Curriculum for Years One to Eight, covering the appropriate learning levels.
- The Arts
- Health and Physical Education
- Learning Languages
- Mathematics and Statistics
- Social Studies
As a Catholic School, we also teach the National Catholic Religious Education Curriculum; in tandem with this we provide our students with opportunities for prayer, reflection and personal growth in the area of Christian Spirituality.
ICT is an integral part of many our class programmes. Use of computers, the web, interactive boards, data projectors and digital cameras are valued tools which support and enhance our programmes.
Our computers are networked and students have supervised access to the Web.
Our library is the busy hub of our school life – for recreational reading and developing a love of literature, research and literacy activities. Our 4,000 books are in great demand and our library lunch hours are popular with students from all levels of the school.
Parents and Caregivers are regularly informed of student progress by a variety of means, both formal and informal. They include curriculum evenings, student work samples, parent –teacher interviews, displays of work and written reports.
While parents and caregivers are welcome at school, they are encouraged to make appointments with teachers should any queries or concerns arise.
