School Values Community Feedback Survey Update
Thank you to all our families who completed our survey to help us review the current school values, as part of the Positive Behaviour 4 Learning journey at our school. We have also consulted with our staff and students about the values that they feel are important and by comparing the data from both surveys we can announce that we will be introducing the following four values at our school:-
  • Responsibility
  • Respect
  • Kindness
  • Resilience
These values will remain in draft until we feel they work proactively and support the learning and teaching at GHS. The next step of our journey involves the school creating a statement of expected behaviours that show what each of the values looks like, sounds like and feels like in different settings across the school. All statements are positively worded, for example, walk quietly, listen or follow instructions. They will be observable and measurable outcomes that we will expect our students, staff and community to use at school. Please contact Fiona Southgate on f.southgate@ghs.school.nz if you need any further information.  We will be keeping you updated.
