THE WEEDONS WAY
The Weedons Way has for a long time represented the traditional beliefs and culture of our school.
The Weedons Way incorporates the core set of values by which the school operates. It includes the school whakatauki and five values.
The Weedons Way underpins curriculum programmes, teaching and learning at our school. It helps to keep all of us focused on what is most important in student learning and development.
In addition, The Weedons Way represents the journey students take during their time at Weedons. It is depicted in the school visual that shows The Weedons Way pathway leading towards the mountains and new challenges. On the way, the children gather in their backpacks the tools they need to become successful lifelong learners.
The Know, Grow, Show on the backpack is a symbol of the learning we want our children to gather on their journey. We want them to know, grow and show understanding of themselves, others, and their world through their values and attitudes.
Know - Understand themselves and the way they learn and interact with others.
Grow - Grow in understanding of themselves, others, and their world.
Show - Show their learning in a variety of ways with an understanding of themselves, others, and their world through their values and attitudes
THE FIVE VALUES
TREATING ALL PEOPLE IN THE WAY I WOULD LIKE TO BE TREATED WHILE BEING POLITE AND USING MY MANNERS.
BELONGING AND WORKING TOGETHER.
BEING TRUTHFUL WITH OTHER PEOPLE AND MYSELF.
ACCEPTING THAT SOME JOBS ARE MINE TO DO AND OWNING MY ACTIONS.
BE THE VERY BEST THAT I CAN, EVEN WHEN IT IS HARD.
