Graduate Profile 1024x725


As your child goes through their educational learning schools are aiming to produce the best “Graduate Profile” of student that they can. In doing so they aim to maximise both the Human Development areas (on the left) and the Key Learning Competencies/NZ Curriculum (on the right).

Students are introduced to something, then go over it again to re-learn/re-affirm that concept, before moving on higher and higher up the ladder.

The main area Kokako Lodge fits into is bridging the gap between left and the right where we provide authentic cross-curricular learning opportunities. This is where we take what was is taught in the classroom and bring it outdoors into the ‘real world’, really cementing those learnings and helping make them available on a daily basis.

All the while your child is progressing through the layers and learnings to come out to be the very best graduate profile that they can be.
