Tēnā koutou katoa,

What are your aspirations and expectations for your child while at MPS?

The Methven Primary School BoT, Staff and Students have been reviewing our School Vision throughout 2019 – 2020.  This has allowed us to clearly define our strengths as a school and identify what makes us unique.  Our Vision shares the aspirations we have for teaching and learning at MPS, and how we will support our learners to achieve success now and in the future.

Communication, Hauora, Innovation, Collaboration and Self-Regulation (CHICS learner qualities) have recently become integral to our Vision and our learning programmes as they ensure important knowledge, skills and attitudes are taught across the curriculum areas. Our learner qualities are transferable to homelife and other learning environments.

We are keen for our whānau to understand the different aspects that are now represented on our new Vision and provide us with feedback.  Please spend some time with your tamariki, and ask them some questions about the Vision before you respond to this survey.

There will be opportunity to discuss our new Vision further during Whānau Workshops next week and to join further focus group discussions to support incorporating local content into our curriculum.

Thank you for your ongoing support.
