Learn By Doing

At Waiau Area School we work hard to ensure that learning happens for all students, that learning is accurately measured, that evidence is gathered, and most importantly that students and their parents know where they are going next in their learning. Students relish the chance to experience success. It helps establish a desire to learn and builds important learning skills like persistence.

The staff of Waiau Area School have developed curriculum schemes from Year 1-13 that reflect the diverse needs of our students.
