To maintain a balanced curriculum we provide high quality professional development for all staff to support their curriculum delivery.

  • Staff will embrace and use the New Zealand Curriculum (NZC) document
  • Staff understand that community involvement and community engagement are essential elements to being a successful educator leading to successful educational outcomes
  • Staff understand that the students they are teaching are being prepared for a world that is rapidly changing and therefore are future focused.
  • Staff work restoratively in their interactions within the College
  • Staff will contribute to the wider life of the school
