Our Values

Our Key Values – Responsibility, Respect, Excellence and Inquiry are of great importance to us. These values are embedded in everything we do and learn at MHPS in our pursuit to achieve our motto of  ‘Growing Excellence’

The New Zealand Curriculum identifies a number of values that have widespread community support.  These values are encouraged, modeled and explored by students in the day to day life of the school.  The table below matches the National Curriculum values with those of Mission Heights Primary School.
