THE WAERENGA WAY

The Waerenga Way is who we are as a school. It is how we act and treat everyone who is a part of our wonderful Kura.

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
