OUR MOTTO:
TAKE PRIDE.


OUR VISION
is to grow confident, connected, contributing, lifelong learners.
Like the Kahikatea tree, we stand tall with our roots in the Earth.
We take pride in ourselves, our community, our environment and our past.
Together we grow and learn.

OUR VALUES

                                                                        Are modelled and taught explicitly through ‘The Netherton Way’ and ‘The Netherton Learner’.  Our key values are:

  • Promoting confidence
    Striving for excellence
    Living with balance and respecting people and place
    Demonstrating creativity and innovation
    Learning in collaboration

OUR CORE LEARNING OBJECTIVES:
We are learning to
- communicate ideas, information and opinions effectively
- show respect for ourselves, other people and our environment
- use appropriate strategies to solve problems efficiently


THE NETHERTON LEARNER

This provides aspirations and language around our vision for our learners.  The language of 'The Netherton Learner' is explicity explicitly taught to the children and the children actively engage in this language in the context of their learning.

THE NETHERTON WAY

The Netherton Way is a scaffold to support children to learn the key competencies of 'Managing Self', 'Relating to Others', and 'Participating and Contributing'. The children manage and modify their behaviour inline with The Netherton Way in order to be self aware and reflective in their ability to have positive behaviour for learning.
