Positive Behaviour For Learning (PB4L)
In reviewing our school values the following language will be used hereon throughout our school in our PB4L signage, certificates and communications. We believe that the language is appropriate to all adults and children within our learning community.
Mission Statement: Celebrating Education in a Bicultural Environment.
Vision Statement: Growing Mana
- Manaakitanga – We are respectful, kind and empathetic
- Kaitiakitanga – We are caretakers of Te Ao Maori and our world
- Whanaungatanga – We are inclusive and connect genuinely with others
- Poutama – We are resilient and aspire to excellence
We have completed our enrolment information evenings for Years 7-13 students for 2020. Thank you to those families who were able to attend. We are always open for new enrolments, but I also invite current whanau, parents and caregivers to make an appointment at any time to come in to school, if you have any queries about 2020.
“Vaping” not permitted at school
It has come to our attention that some of our students are “vaping” and may believe that this is permitted at school. Please note that smoking and vaping are both not permitted anywhere on the Raglan School site.
Cellphone Policy trial Term 4 2019
During my time at Raglan this year I have had many conversations with parents, teachers and students about our students’ access to digital devices and cell phones during the school day. To this end we are trialling our new procedures during Term 4. In discussions with teachers, we have made the decision to restrict students access to using digital devices to class time only with teacher approval – this includes cell phones. We will seek whanau and student feedback before making a final decision for 2020.
The main reasons for taking this stance are:
- We want our students to have device free break times.
- We will be encouraging our students to participate in outdoor activities and to communicate verbally and face to face at these times.
- We wish to minimise students unsupervised access to use their devices inappropriately to bully other students via messaging and sharing of photographs and videos.
