Our Learning Powers

The Revised New Zealand Curriculum, 2007 describes Key Competencies:

People use Key Competencies to live, learn, work, and contribute as active members of their communities. More complex than skills, the competencies draw also on knowledge, attitudes and values, in ways that lead to action. They are not separate or stand-alone. They are the key to learning in every learning area.
At Lincoln Primary School, the Key Competencies, as identified in the New Zealand Curriculum, are expressed through our Learner Powers.

Our Learner Powers are:
The Power of SELF, the Power of PEOPLE, The Power of ACTION and The Power of THINKING.

At Lincoln Primary School our Learner Powers are important because they are future-focused, and we believe they develop in our students:
  • The capabilities that will enable them to live, learn, work, and contribute as active members of their communities now and in the future.
