The aim of discovery learning is to make learning deep, meaningful, challenging, hands-on, and enjoyable.  Our essential learning is supported by our discovery learning, which provides opportunities for literacy, numeracy and inquiry learning.

Learning through play helps Hauroko Valley School realise the vision of the New Zealand Curriculum to develop confident, connected, actively involved, lifelong learners. 

Our HVP School Values are enhanced through our Discovery Time sessions.  The focus on communicating between students is incredibly valuable to the success of their development. key competencies, and school values with a real purpose. 

Along with this, there are also opportunities to further develop fine motor and gross motor skills.
