Our vision was developed during 2013 after extensive consultation
with all stakeholders -staff, students, board of trustees, parents, business
sector and the wider community in order to ensure the vision considered the
views of all.
At Te Kowhai School we recognise that the world is undergoing rapid social, economic and technological change and we need to prepare and equip our TK learners (including adults) to be adaptable to meet these changes with confidence.
Our focus is on how best to prepare our children to thrive in life. For our children to be able to thrive in the 21st Century, where technology and change are the norm; where many of the jobs in the future currently don’t exist. We want them to be digitally and culturally competent.
We recognise that there is a possible future, probable future & preferable future.
We want to prepare our learners for a preferable future, and it is our view of the future that drives current actions.
We want our TK learners to be empowered & at the centre of their learning.
We have developed a visual representation of our school vision & values to help ensure that it is shared and understood by our community.
Through having our school vision & values represented in a visual way, we are helping to ensure that it is a living and breathing component of our school curriculum.
