The Waerenga Way

Waerenga School is a friendly, helpful and caring school where everyone is able to feel safe and happy, and to learn effectively.

Staff, students, parents and the community work as a team to provide effective learning for the students.

1.  HELP EVERYONE TO DO THEIR BEST

  • This means we get on with our learning, try our hardest, and let others do the same.
  • This gives everyone a chance to make a success of their time at school.

 

2.  RESPECT OTHER PEOPLE AND THEIR PROPERTY

  • This means we only touch other people or their belongings if we have their permission.
  • This helps everyone to feel safe and happy.

 

3. BEHAVE IN SAFE AND CORRECT WAYS

  • This means we obey school and classroom rules and avoid doing anything that may harm ourselves or others.
  • This helps us to make our school a credit to our community, and a safe and effective place in which everyone may learn.

 

4.  SPEAK AND ACT POLITELY

  • This means we are well mannered, considerate and friendly to each other, to staff and to visitors.
  • This makes our school a pleasant place for everyone.

 

5.  RESPOND TO REASONABLE REQUESTS FROM OTHERS

  • This means we co-operate with others and consider their needs.
  • This makes it easier for us to live and learn together.

 

6.  LOOK AFTER OUR SCHOOL AT ALL TIMES

  • This means we avoid doing things that will damage school equipment and buildings, as we keep classrooms and grounds looking good.
  • This makes the school a pleasant and safe place for all of us.

 

We will all gain a lot from the school and each other if we behave in the Waerenga Way
