Our Vision and Values

OUR VISION

Learners will live and celebrate our Catholic faith, follow our values, and become actively engaged, connected lifelong learners.

OUR VALUES

At St Ignatius Catholic School we follow Jesus by being learners who are…

RESPECTFUL – WHAKANUI

This means we will follow in the footsteps of Jesus like Saint Mary MacKillop and ‘Be gentle and kind to one another’.

I am respectful. I treat others and my self as we deserve to be treated.  I show courtesy to everyone.  I learn from the wisdom of my elders.

RESPONSIBLE – TAKOHANGA

This means we will follow in the footsteps of Jesus like Saint Mary MacKillop and ‘Do all we can to assist and love one another.’

I am responsible. I give my best to all that I do and keep my agreements.  I learn from my mistakes.  I am willing to make amends.

GENEROUS – OHAOHA

This means we will follow in the footsteps of Jesus like Saint Mary MacKillop and ‘Never see a need without doing something about it.’

I am generous. I look for opportunities to give and to share.   There is plenty of time for thoughtfulness.   I give freely, fully, and joyfully.

HAPPY – HARI

This means we will follow in the footsteps of Jesus like Saint Mary MacKillop and ‘Find happiness in making others happy.’

I am thankful for the happiness I feel inside.  I enjoy my work and play.  I appreciate the gifts this day holds for me.
