Launchpad Champions is a weekly, 30-minute presentation using kōrero, multimedia, music and games to equip tamariki from years one to eight with good values.
Our volunteer presenters from local communities are endorsed, police-vetted and trained, sign our code of expectations and follow all relevant laws and Ministry of Education guidelines.
Our Launchpad Champions curriculum, developed by teachers and reviewed by school boards of trustees, uses kōrero from the Bible and well-known role models from New Zealand and around the world to teach and support key values and competencies found in the NZ curriculum. For example: integrity, respect, diversity, equity, community and participation, thinking, using language symbols and texts, managing self, relating to others, and participating and contributing.
An example of curriculum units and the key competencies and values they support can be found at the bottom of this document.
