What Schools Say

"SPARX resources have provided a model that is values-based, and supports the principles and values of the NZ Curriculum. I have found the Sparx Learning Path easy to adapt and follow. The words are easy to explain to children. You can take the inquiry model apart and focus with children on each of the stages.

The shared language across the school has been  valuable and the questions give the teachers lots of ideas for lessons and discussions. The extra Discovery Sheet resources are valuable."

Tui MacMillan,
Tirimoana School

"As Curriculum Leader at our school, it is a pleasure and a privilege to endorse the curriculum resources designed by Helen Pearson."
Wanda Nair
Assistant Principal
Christ the King School,
Mt Roskill, Auckland

“We have found SPARX Resources very useful for our planning. We have enjoyed the way it links and connects the learning areas together. It is a great integrated resource that fits in with the NZ curriculum very well. We find the SPARX Learning Path is a good basis for teachers to link prior knowledge right through to new learning. We really like the Character Education Teacher Manual and have found the Responsibility focus excellent as a foundation.”
Kerry Farrant, DP, Putaruru School
