Students


The curriculum at LAC is organised around the Learning Areas identified in the New Zealand Curriculum: English, the Arts, Health and Physical Education, Mathematics and Statistics, Science, the Social Sciences and Technology, and the school’s special character subject – Bible. Through these subjects the school weaves relevant values and key competencies.

LAC’s attitude towards students and their learning is:

  • All students are to be seen as individuals (we really want to know each person) and we will not give up on any one of them.
  • All students will engage in the learning process and will achieve.

This attitude is ‘caught’ by students, with most succeeding in passing NCEA.
