Our approach to visioning for a learner who graduates from our school has been informed by several references including the Ministry of Education statement on the Key Competencies http://nzcurriculum.tki.org.nz/The-New-Zealand-Curriculum/Key-competencies

   * thinking
   * using language, symbols, and texts
   * managing self
   * relating to others
   * participating and contributing

and the International Baccalaureate Organisation's learner profile. [1] the key elements of which are that students will be:

  • Inquirers
  • Knowledgeable
  • Thinkers
  • Communicators
  • Principled
  • Open-minded
  • Caring
  • Risk-takers
  • Balanced
  • Reflective

We subscribe to the Ministry of Education aspiration for learners who are:

  • Confident - we mean
  • Connected
  • Actively involved
  • Lifelong learners

We also have a vision for students for whom Te Marautanga Maori is the curriculum:

Te Marautanga o Aotearoa envisages young Māori with a strong sense of identity as Māori participating actively in the Māori world and gaining a rich base of skills that will offer them a range of career choices. It expands this vision in a summary of the most important qualities and characteristics a young Māori graduate will have.

There are close connections between:

helping students to develop the characteristics in this graduate profile
helping them develop career management competencies.

Key resources we rely on:
