Our school will:
Support, foster and provide learning opportunities for all.
Broaden and accelerate the implementation of innovative learning practice.
Provide opportunities for our learners to be connected locally, nationally and globally.
Check out our Strategic Goals and Vision Document to find out more about what this involves.
These are the dispositions we foster in each of our learners:
"I am a Self Manager: I am in charge of my learning."
"I am a Collaborater: I learn with, about and from others."
"I am a Citizen: I use and share our school values."
"I am a Thinker: I am a critical and creative thinker."
Ensure all Māori students, their parents and their whānau participate in and contribute to an engaging and enjoyable educational journey that recognises and celebrates their unique identity, language and culture. This journey will support Māori students to achieve the skills, knowledge and qualifications they need to achieve success in te ao Māori, New Zealand and in the wider world.
Five out of five Pasifika learners are participating, engaging and achieving in education, secure in their identities, languages and cultures, contributing fully to Aotearoa New Zealand’s social, cultural and economic well being.
Kaurilands School is committed to the process of review to best enhance outcomes for all students and teachers. The basis of this review cycle is Reflect - Preserve - Discard - Create.
