Our Strategic Plan 2022 - 2024
The kōrero behind our journey to create this vision
Our connection and location to Maungakiekie inspired our vision statement: ‘Growing our future together’. The word ‘growing’ symbolises the slopes of Maungakiekie which connect us not only to our location but also to our turangawaewae (sense of identity). The word growing creates powerful imagery that represents staff, students and whānau as we progress through our unique learning journeys. The words ‘together’ and ‘our’ are critical in our vision statement as they acknowledge our connection to each other and the significant role we all take on within a collaborative learning environment. ‘Future’ has been incorporated into our vision statement as it is important that our students recognise they are active participants in shaping and driving their own future.
Our school values were co-constructed with the community in 2020 and have strong links to our vision statement. Our three values include; manaakitanga (respecting ourselves, those around us and our environment) hiringa (being determined to do our best) and aroha (demonstrating empathy and compassion towards others). These values support our vision statement and are at the heart of all that we do and believe at Oranga School.
In consultation with our Oranga School community we have developed a strategic plan which identifies our direction for 2022-2024.
The first strategic goal acknowledges that we are all learners and places importance on increasing learning for all, which encapsulates both staff and community. Our learning pathways connect us and provide us with a shared commitment to strive for success.
Educational practices regularly change and evolve. For this reason we recognise the importance of having a learning community that reflects, refines and is adaptive in seeking opportunities to enhance future focused learning opportunities for our students.
Relationships are at the heart of what we do and this is reflected in our strategic vision through our final goal. This goal recognises and acknowledges the strength and diversity our community brings and the importance of working together to achieve the best environment and successes for our students.
Our students and community are proud to be part of Oranga School.
Ehara tāku toa i te toa takitahi engari, he toa takitini.
My successes are not mine alone, they are ours - the greatest success we will have is from working together.
