High Expectations

Students engage in learning knowing that at Rotokawa School they will progressively develop agency in their learning and leadership, with high achievement expectations, doing the best they can do .

Learning to Learn

Treaty of Waitangi

Students engage in learning Te Reo Maori me ona tikanga Maori based on the bicultural partnership of the Treaty of Waitangi informed by our local whanau, hapu, and iwi connections.

Community Engagement

Cultural Diversity

Students engage in learning that reflects our local cultural diversity of our local community, and from this strong sense of self-identity, broaden their knowledge of how other communities may be different. 

Coherence

Inclusion

Students engage in learning with deep understanding of others and their well-being, using our school values to underpin how we think,feel and interact successfully with others.
