Learning

"The  power to dream and the passion to achieve" – our vision, drives much of our decision making.  Four iconic New Zealander's (Hillary, Snell, Sheppard, Te Kanawa) have informed our four houses  which have in turn influenced our school values (cornerstones); Excelling through Effort, Reaching for the Sky, Nurturing the Human Spirit and Leading the Way.  These four cornerstones form a key element of our graduation profile. 

To ensure we are developing confident, connected, actively involved life long learners, we have four key competencies to guide our learning programmes.  Our  'KTS Learner' attributes are equipped, empowered, self aware and connected.  

Our learning programmes cover nine key learning areas throughout the year; English, Maths, Science, Social Science, Technology, The Arts, Languages, Health and PE. 

Each student's achievement, and their well-being, is at the forefront our decision making.  

Parent / whanau support and engagement is a key factor in each students.
