The Respect Launch
At Ngaio School these mean:
“I consider others and my environment”
“I am eager to question and wonder”
“I always strive to do the best I can”
“I am an important part of my class, school and community”
“I keep trying even when things get tough”
“I will do the right thing, even when no one is watching”
The values were reviewed in 2014 following consultation with the staff and community. Year 6 students were surveyed. Here is some of their feedback.
