The NHLC Learning Standards are a framework of essential learning based on the premise that there are three components of any curriculum which are necessary to enable students to meet the demands of a modern, globalised world.
One of the three core strands in the Standards is Physical, Personal and Social Learning which includes the learning domains of Interpersonal Development and Personal Learning.
In our highly interconnected and interdependent world, students learn to work with others by: building positive social relationships; working and learning in teams; and managing and resolving conflicts.
