Te Whāriki
The Early Childhood Curriculum
of New Zealand

Devised in 1996 and updated in 2017, Te Whāriki has greatly influenced Early Childhood Curriculums throughout the world. Te Whāriki is designed to encourage children’s agency, commitment, exploration and aspirations. Its aim is to create lifelong learners.
Underpinning Te Whāriki is the vision that all children are “competent and confident learners and communicators, healthy in mind, body and spirit, secure in their sense of belonging and in the knowledge that they make a valued contribution to society”.

HALLOWEEN AT LAVELLE ACADEMY

The children at Lavelle Academy have been busy all week baking delicious treats. To promote kindness, the children 'treated' all of our wonderful support staff here at Lavelle who help to keep our school safe, clean and prepare our delicious meals! It is our take on the usual trick or treat to encourage the concept of giving and appreciating our community.
Happy Halloween from all of us at Lavelle Academy!
