The Tawhiti Way
Our vision - 'a caring place for lifelong learning'.
We want to develop in our tamariki a passion for learning and a curiosity that will last a lifetime. We want them to leave our school as active and engaged learners who have the skills, attitudes and competencies to seize opportunities, contribute to our community, and achieve to their potential. The caring aspect of our vision reflects the importance we place on relationships.
At Tawhiti School learners are encouraged to develop an A1 attitude to self, others and the environment.
Self - We want our children to value themselves as learners and people, to strive for progress and to act in honest and responsible ways.
Others - This value encompasses the idea of manaakitanga. We want our learners to treat others with kindness and respect and build positive relationships for learning and life.
Environment - This value encompasses the idea of kaitiakitanga; caring for our environment so it is around for generations to come.
