Our Leadership Principles
Our three guiding principles focus on leadership Tino Rangatiratanga 
Leading Self
Is about Whananungatanga (relationships).
Being connected requires students to develop a secure sense of identity.   To achieve this we learn to know ourselves, develop resilience, set goals, and work towards achieving these goals and our potential. 
Leading with others
Is about Manaakitanga (values).
Developing a generosity of spirit involves the ability to walk in others' shoes, to see issues from others' perspectives, to develop empathy and to support others.  
Leading in our world
Is about Kaitiakitanga (guardianship).
Our hands-on learners are guardians that aim high, step up, and are thoughtful and sensitive of environments both local and distant.
