What are Learning Capacities?

The learning capacities (or key competencies) underpin everything that happens in teaching and learning at Ahuroa School. There are four main principles that underpin the key competencies: 

ACTIVE

Students are "doing" – applying learning and using learning in meaningful ways; are generating knowledge through their participation in learning

REAL AND PURPOSEFUL 

Students interact with others in real, authentic contexts; connections are made between learning areas

RELEVANT

Learning is relevant to students' lives now and also supports their development as life-long learners

EMPOWERING

There is attention to developing students' learning dispositions – their desire, inclination, and will to learn
