At Silver Fern we believe our students need a solid foundation in the core curriculum of Maths, English and Science, complemented by a very broad range of other subjects. These subjects include Social Science, Chinese, Music, Art, ICT, Physical Education and Thai. This is achieved by following the New Zealand Curriculum for English and Maths with the remaining subjects fully integrated through the use of the International Primary Curriculum (IPC). The decision to send your children to Silver Fern International School is a positive choice, which will help shape their future and prepare them for life in the 21st Century.
There is a major focus on using a variety of assessment tools throughout the core subjects. All students are assessed and evaluated throughout the year by their teacher, self and their peers. Teachers are able to track and monitor students’ progress continuously. This information is used to plan the next teaching and learning steps. Therefore the majority of programmes are differentiated and so catering for all learning styles and needs of Silver Fern students
Our class sizes are small. This allows us to take a close personal interest in every student, because every student is unique. These small classes are always made up of mixed abilities. Therefore our goal is to develop self-directed learners who are developing the skills, knowledge, attitudes and values to be lifelong learners.
