Te Ahi Kaikōmako Rolleston School

Our Purpose

At Te Ahi Kaikōmako Rolleston School we have developed a set of core beliefs that we aspire to nurture, grow and live by. These beliefs, in partnership with our Te Ahi Kaikōmako Rolleston School Values, are central to ensuring we are: 

Standing Together to Ignite Our Learning.

Te Ahi Kaikōmako Hapori The Wonder of Learning Whanaungatanga

We believe:

  • We all have the right to feel safe, valued and respected
  • We all have the right to express themselves and explore their curiosities
  • We all have capabilities & passions that deserve to be nurtured
We believe that when learners’ passions, interests and needs are sparked they are engaged, curious and self-motivated in their learning to become confident, connected, life-long learners. We believe that nurturing, inclusive and supportive partnerships based around authentic collaborations and effective communication, ensure a strong sense of belonging.
