Our Vision

21st century future focused learning is one of the keys in unlocking a culturally responsive and innovative curriculum. 

Whanaungatanga (getting to know one another) is about relationship, kinship and a sense of family connection. It is created through shared experiences, working together and provides people with a sense of belonging. With it, comes rights and obligations, which serve to strengthen each member of that whānau or group.

Our Values

Creating a common shared vision together with our students and their families creates a strong pathway for all our learners from Years 1 to Year 8.  It is the “togetherness” or whanau/aiga approach that underpins our Robertson Road culture and we believe that it reflects the authenticity of our community.
