Vision, Goals & Values

Our School VISION:
As a Hay Park School positive learner I will:
Believe in my potential
Achieve my dreams
Succeed through life

Ko ngā pae tawhiti o te ākonga ngākau pai o te Kura o Hay Park:
Me whakapono i taku pito mata
Me tutuki i aku wawata
Whāia te iti kahurangi

As a school the Hay Park School staff work in partnership with our community by:

  • Creating a welcoming and inclusive environment for all ākonga and their whānau
  • Building powerful, reciprocal partnerships that value expertise
  • Raising each other’s expectations for learner progress and achievement
  • Developing capability to support children’s learning through home-school partnerships
  • Enabling whānau to contribute and influence policy and practice


In partnership with our community we prepare our ākonga to be successful learners who have the ability to take action to shape their future.

Our learning programmes are based on high quality instruction that is future focused, culturally responsive and inclusive.

At Hay Park School we work to prepare our students to be successful ākonga.

This means meeting learning needs to help them be:

  • Literate and numerate
  • Critical thinkers and problem solvers
  • Creative and reflective thinkers
  • Able to persevere
  • Able to set and achieve goals
  • Motivated to strive for personal excellence
  • Able to relate well to others

When ākonga leave Hay Park School we want them to:

  • Be achieving at or above the expectation in reading, writing and maths so that they can continue to be lifelong learners
  • Be confident to accept challenges and take responsibility for their learning, with a ‘can do’ attitude
  • Be capable and confident thinkers and learners, and communicate effectively using a range of tools
  • Make good decisions about their learning, behaviour and relationships
  • Respect Māori as tangata whenua and celebrate the variety of ethnic groups and cultures who make up our society
  • Be aware of their special talents and abilities
  • Be motivated to strive for personal excellence by setting and achieving their goals
  • Be concerned citizens who are informed about New Zealand and the world 
  • Have a strong sense of responsibility and take an active part in bettering the lives of others around them

At Hay Park School our vision is achieved through fostering our core values:

Whakaute - Respect
Manawaroa - Resilience
Kaitiakitanga - Responsibility
