Moving All Children Forward
We have high expectations for all students, and we work with the Te Iti Kahurangi Community of Learning to create easy transitions between ECE, Primary, Intermediate and Secondary School. Our goal is to impart a life-long passion for learning and to enable our students to achieve success in whatever they take on in later life.
We use a range of testing tools to ensure our teaching team can see what works and what doesn’t for each child. Tools used include PAT (Progressive Achievement Test) and ICAS (formerly Australasian Schools Competitions), covering subjects in English, Maths and Science.
Student progress and results are now recorded in the eTAP Student Management System for increased ability to analyse and report on student achievement.
Gifted & Talented and Additional Programmes
Gifted and talented children at Oranga School are those who, regardless of differences, have potential or demonstrate exceptional performance in one of the following areas:
- General or specific academic aptitude
- Creative ability
- Leadership ability
- Visual or performing arts, including cultural arts
- Physical activity
- Technological ability
Both withdrawal and in-class programmes will be used to develop those children's potential and self motivation using available staff strengths and those from the wider community.
