Our New Zealand Curriculum (NZC) (MoE, 2007) has a set of national values. Schools then localise their own set of values. We have a new set of school values:
I CarE which stands for INTEGRITY (Ngākaunui), CURIOSITY (Pakirehua), EXCELLENCE (Hiranga) and the "CarE" is Manaakitanga that underpins all values.
We encourage you to korero/talk with your children about the values and how we are focusing on how the values are enacted in all settings!
Our school wide values matrix and values essence statements are the result of staff, children and community voice/thinking.
The values review is part of our larger Nga Iwi School Learning Vision self-review/evaluation.
