The New Zealand Curiculum Online - Success for boys.

Success for Boys navigation

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

Families, whānau and communities

Engaging with families, whānau, and your school community about their hopes, concerns, and aspirations for their boys will help you develop a shared commitment to raising the engagement and achievement of boys in your school.

Families, whānau, and your school community have a key role to play in the success of boys in your school. By working with whānau and your community, you can work towards a shared understanding of the importance of meeting boys’ learning needs and supporting their educational achievement.

Parents and whānau need opportunities to build on what they are already doing at home to support their boys’ learning. Providing programmes that look to address the real needs of parents and their boys in your school will help you raise the level of engagement and achievement of boys in your school.
