Our students will enjoy an excellent all-round education. Together we will prepare them to be confident caring citizens who reflect critically, think creatively, communicate effectively and embrace learning throughout life.
Our Place to Grow and Learn Together – Ko tatou kura, kia tipu, kia ako ngatahi guides what we do every day. Staff are involved in learning alongside students in the classroom as well as tailored professional development. Current focuses for staff are around digital fluency, problem solving in mathematics, restorative practice, and Mandarin and Te Reo.
We are all guided by our four core values; BELONGING, RESPECT, CREATIVITY and ACHIEVEMENT. Each term we have a different focus that is carried through Monday morning whole school ‘Values’ assemblies; a range of activities and tasks around an aspect of that value. FUN is an integral element that is interwoven throughout everything that we all do at Whangarei Heads School.
