Our Vision and Values

"Preparing and inspiring our students to achieve their very best in a global society”

Ormiston Senior College acknowledges the vision, principles, values and key competencies in the New Zealand Curriculum and values the unique place of Maori as tangata whenua of New Zealand.

We value:

  • Personalized learning opportunities that are flexible and authentic and meet each student’s aspirations and educational needs.

  • Achievement of excellence and a culture where success is fostered, celebrated and admired.

  • Supporting students to take responsibility for their own learning and for the learning of others.

  • Equipping students with the confidence and capability to pursue their preferred futures and lifelong learning.

  • A holistic education where, in addition to an academic focus, involvement in the wider life of the school is expected and valued. The wider life of the school could be cultural, enterprise, service or sporting.

  • Outstanding educators who foster curiosity, and inspire and support students to successfully push the boundaries of their abilities.

  • Teaching and learning based on leading edge research, the creation and sharing of ideas and knowledge, and a commitment to continuous improvement.

  • A stimulating and challenging culture where staff and students are open-minded and relate to each other respectfully and thoughtfully.

  • Diversity and the life experiences of others.

  • Integrating new technologies into the wide range of opportunities students are offered to enable them to participate in a global world.

  • A strong connection with the local community where families and others are involved in the school, and students contribute in the community.

  • An exceptional learning environment which honours sustainability, environment and heritage.
