Welcome to Cashmere Primary School's Ultranet site! I'm Jacqui Duncan, Principal of Cashmere Primary School.
The purpose of this site is to keep you up to date with what's happening at our school within individual classrooms, and to share with you the latest educational information. On the right of this page are a number of boxes that you can select to find out more information on the NZ Curriculum, National Standards, Ideas for Parents, Key Competencies, School Stories and Research from NZCER.
The education of children is complex, important and worthy of further investigation. Simple answers to complex problems usually fall far short of the truth. Do your own reading, thinking and investigation on educational matters hitting the news!
Below are the school's values and learning philosophy illustrated in the Learning Mountain. To find out more on our values and pilosophy,
to make yourself familiar with the expectations of students after 2, 4, 6, and 8 years at school, or to explore the expectations we have of students with regard to key competencies,
go to the school's website
