Success for boys is a subsection of New Zealand Curiculum Online.

Activity-based learning

Activity-based learning is about using the curriculum to take a creative approach to education. Schools Plus is a new government policy that supports activity-based learning and will help your boys reach their potential.

Activity-based learning is about harnessing the flexibility provided through the curriculum to develop broad programmes of learning that work for your boys. It’s about providing educational opportunities that combine school-based and out-of-school, tertiary or community-based learning to engage them in education and keep them interested in staying at school.

Examples of activity-based learning
