A core component of the New Zealand Curriculum is the Key Competencies. Key Competencies focus on developing the understandings, skills and dispositions (habits) for our ākonga to develop as successful and lifelong learners. These competencies do not stand alone or separately from overall learning but are intertwined and integrated through all learning. Schools and kura are able to tailor these key competencies to reflect their hapori (community). We have framed our own key competencies at Roslyn School.
