What we value

Overview

We are a values based school with a focus on creating good human beings. We ensure everything we do is centred around our values of caring, belonging and learning.

Student working collaboratively in classroom

“School leaders collaboratively develop, pursue and enact the school’s vision and targets for equity and excellence. Their well considered strategic approach is consultative and inclusive.”
— ERO Report

Be the best you can be

It is expected that students and staff are guided by our values to ensure that the experience of anyone in our school community is positive and uplifting.

We adopt a firm, fair and consistent approach to managing behaviour within the frameworks of Restorative Practice and Positive Behaviour for Learning (PB4L), using our values to guide this.

At Waimea College we encourage you to be the best you can be by:

  • caring for yourself, others and the environment;
    taking pride in being part of Waimea College;
  • respecting and celebrating everyone’s differences;
  • always striving to learn and grow.
