We show Responsible/Takohanga by:

  • Looking after our own things

  • Taking ownership of what we choose to do
  • Being prepared for learning
  • Solving problems in appropriate ways, such as using our WITS:

Students who show our school values are rewarded with gotchas. These can be given out in the classroom, playground, on school trips by all members of staff. Once a student earns four of these they can post them into our school draw. Each fortnight, six students names are drawn out at school assembly, and they get to choose a prize. Students are also rewarded with a postcard and small reward each time they reach every 20 gotchas. When a student reaches 100 gotchas they can earn a wristband with our school values on it.
