At RSS, every child is different and we want to make sure they all strive for excellence to reach their full potential! We need to set high expectations, however, we also need to personalise the excellence journey. Each child has their own benchmark and their own personal excellence!
Whaia te iti kahurangi, ki te tuohu koe, me he maunga teitei!
Strive for excellence, if you stumble let it be to a lofty mountain
At RSS, we need to teach our tamariki about respecting and taking care of our School and the environment we live in! Māori were great conservationists and had the utmost respect for Papatuanuku. They knew that respecting their environment was essential to their health and well-being. So they had a heightened sense of responsibility and obligation to the land.
At RSS, Hautūtanga is a form of leadership, it’s when every person is supported to discover their own true talents, skills and passions. So they can confidently captain their own waka as they explore the world around them.
Inā kei te mohio koe ko wai koe, I anga mai koe I hea, kei te mohio koe, kei te anga atu ki hea.
If you know who you are and where you are from, then you will know where you are going.
