Our Vision and Values
Empowering Learners who C.A.R.E.
Te Whakamana i ngā Ākonga e Tiaki ana
Ma Te Mahi Ka Ora
From hard work comes success
Empowered learners are motivated, engaged and have confidence in their abilities; they have opportunities to make decisions that make a difference in their lives and in the lives of others.
Our school vision was developed through consultation across our community:
we aim to develop empowered learners who are motivated, engaged and have confidence in their abilities; they have opportunities to make decisions that make a difference in their lives and in the lives of others.
Our C.A.R.E. values ensure we focus on the whole child and develop caring and compassionate future citizens. They form the foundation of our school culture and are embedded in everything we do.
The artwork for our values incorporates key elements from our school logo which reflect our local environment. These elements have been selected to align with each value. Each of our teams has the name of a whale and the whale tale in the logo signifies our learners and the values we aim to develop as they travel through our school - Te Ara Kahika - the chiefs pathway.
