Behaviour Management System 2015 (click)

Please read on...

 

Please find attached the 2015 Hikuai School Behaviour Management Document. As mentioned in the Back to School newsletter this is not a change of Behaviour Management policy but rather illustrates the form that policy takes within the school yard at Hikuai School.

The emphasis will always be on the positive, the good and the kind at Hikuai School and as you read on you will see the TOTARA STUDENT takes on a new and pivotal dimension in this regard. At the same time however, there must be clear guidelines for staff, students and parents if a child chooses not to adhere to or deviates from the behaviour expectations of a student at Hikuai and this document conveys the consequences and the actions taken if this is indeed the case.

Please take the time to read through the document and talk about it with your  children. Staff will be working through the expectations and consequences at school with the students as well.

Like all good systems and procedures they will be reviewed on a regular basis to ensure they are best serving the mission and vision of the school.

Totara Student - Josh (click pic)

At Hikuai School our behaviour management procedures are focussed on two different but equally important facets of school life

In 2015 each letter within the word Totara will be aligned with a principle or principles that we deem to be core as to who we are at Hikuai School. When a parent or guest walks into Hikuai School we want them to see these principles and values embedded in the actions, interactions, thoughts and conversations of students and staff alike. We want them to be able to see that at Hikuai School we don’t just pay lip service to these principles and values but we actually walk the walk and talk the talk.

 

With the above clearly in mind, in 2015 and onwards the ‘Totara Student’ will be the student who has reflected these principles and values the most over the fortnight within their classroom and within the playground and will be rewarded for their dedication to our school and its values and principles. 

The Totara Student  is:

  • Trustworthy
  • Organized
  • Thoughtful
  • Ambitious
  • Respectful & resilient
  • Aware



2014-2016 School Charter

At its 31 March 2014 meeting, the Board of Trustees ratified the 2014-2016 Hikuai School Charter.  The Education Act requires every school to have a charter and also to submit the charter to the Ministry of Education.  The Charter is a key planning document that sets out the school's objectives and targets for the year.  Our 2014 goals around increasing the number of students achieving 'at' or 'above' National Standards in reading are set out in this year's Charter.  I encourage you to read it. 

Regards,

Mark Milmine
Chairman, Board of Trustees
