Our Values

Our values underpin our school culture and philosophy.
They influence our decision-making and are expressed in the ways we think and act.

Aumangea – Resilience

He toka tū moana

A rock standing firm in the sea

Eke Panuku – Personal Best

Whāia e koe te iti kahurangi; ki te tūohu koe, me maunga teitei

Seek that treasure that you value most dearly, if you have to bow your head, let it be to a lofty mountain

Atawhai – Kindness

Aroha mai, aroha atu

Love received, love returned.

Ākonga – Learner

Mā te huruhuru ka rere te manu

Adorn the bird with feathers so it may soar.

There’s always room to grow. Learning a new skill, solving problems, and helping others are just some of the many “feathers” you can wear in order to soar high. The more strengths you have, the higher you’ll fly!
