The principle of “learning to learn” is central to our philosophy of teaching and learning at Tauranga Primary school. We have defined learning as: Learning is engaging in an ongoing process of making connections, discovery, and challenge; building knowledge and skills to make meaning of our world. The Tauranga Primary School learning model is taught and referred to across all year groups. We use the Learning Model to make learning visible by explicitly teaching the process of how to learn, and build learner dispositions and capacity, so that our learners can acquire the knowledge and skills to make meaning of the world.
