P.R.I.D.E. Home Learning Challenges
This year we are continuing the P.R.I.D.E. Learning Challenges as a way for our students to develop their understanding of our school values and citizenship towards their school, home and community.
These challenges provide a significant amount of meaningful, relevant and community-based home learning which is engaging for our students. The P.R.I.D.E. Learning Challenges provide students with the opportunity to show their “agency” by selecting from a range of activities that will develop their understanding of our school P.R.I.D.E. Values and what it means to be a good citizen in our community.

One major difference about these Learning Challenges is that they are optional. There is no compulsory requirement to complete these challenges.

P.R.I.D.E Learning takes into account the many activities that children are already involved with, both in and outside of school, rather than adding more constraints to their time.

For those of you who are familiar with more traditional homework options like spelling words, reading logs and basic facts practice, the P.R.I.D.E Learning Challenges still cater for this, especially under the “Respecting your Learning” umbrella.

This programme is aligned with the New Zealand Curriculum’s vision of developing lifelong learners and developing the key competencies in children. The programme offers a wide range of enjoyable and interesting challenges that will involve the family as well as the child.

Please be involved in your child's learning (this alone will have more impact than any homework sheet the school may have sent home in the past) and encourage them to participate in the P.R.I.D.E. Learning Challenges - it is worth it.

Please connect with your child’s teacher if you have any further queries.
