Bilingual Programme

Central Normal School offers a bilingual programme ranging from NE –Year 6 at Level 2 (Between 50- 80% of teaching and learning in Te Reo Maori). One of our teaching teams, Te Arawaru, has six classes to cater for this learning. They presently use both Te Marautanga O Aotearoa and NZC to develop their teaching programmes from.

Other Learning

The cultural diversity of New Zealand is recognised through school curriculum plans which outline cultural elements to be included within each class programme. Learning opportunities in Tikanga Maori and Te Reo Maori are provided in every classroom. All teachers are required to include Maori perspectives in curriculum planning whenever possible, and to introduce basic Te Reo Maori language into classroom learning.
