Vision and Values

Through community consultation meetings, questionaires, speaking with staff and students we have a school vision statement which our local
kaumātua has translated for the school

“A safe, collaborative environment connecting learning today for a successful tomorrow.”
“Every Student Matters.  Every day Counts”


In consultation with our students, whānau, staff and community we have created a set of values that we agreed were important to us.  The Values are to be woven into our curriculum and staff and students are encouraged to demonstrate these qualities in their daily life both at school and beyond into the community, and be able to reflect on them in order to have an understanding of what they look like in practice.

These Values listed above can be linked to the Key Competencies in the New Zealand Curriculum.  As part of the classroom learning programmes staff will endeavour to make relevant links and references to both School Values and Key Competencies in an effort to ensure that our students hear the words and understand what they ‘look like in practice.
