Vision and Values

“Our children are able to progress with confidence”

To provide a caring environment where children can enjoy, share, develop and extend their learning.
To keep our school staffed with qualified competent teachers.
To have the support of the community.


Values are deeply held beliefs about what is important or desirable. We encourage the use of values as a natural part of Whananaki School. Throughout the year we explore different values and celebrate how the children demonstrate these during the week at Friday’s assembly.  Children are expected to value:

  • Excellence
  • Respect
  • Participation & Contribution
  • Integrity
  • Diversity
  • Inquiry
  • Ecological Sustainability
