Building on the charism of our founding order, we have integrated the Sister of Mercy values into our own school values programme; so that we can promote them and use them to help us make decisions in our daily lives. Our values are encouraged, modelled and explored and they are an integral component of life at school.
Intertwined in our Mercy values are Tikanga Maori Values – together they help us achieve a valued based education for the children at our school.
COMPASSION – The value of ‘Compassion’ is about loving and caring for family and friends. It is showing kindness to people, listening to others and celebrating our differences. Compassion is about feeling that you can make a difference.
AWHINA: The value of ‘Awhina’ is about supporting and helping others. It is about being helpful by looking after ourselves, our school, environment and community.
RESPECT: The value of ‘Respect’ is about serving our church and parish, using good manners and keeping our body and mind healthy. It is treating others how we would like to be treated.
EXCELLENCE: The value of ‘Excellence’ is about achieving our personal best in all we do. It is about being ready for different situations and showing perseverance and awareness of our next learning steps.
