Mission and Vision
Our mission is, ‘lifelong learning that is accessible to all’. The beliefs which underpin our mission are that education should be available to all and that we should do our utmost to create opportunities for lifelong access to secondary learning for adolescent and adult students.
Our vision is that captured in our whakatauki: ka puāwai te koru, ka puāwai te tangata: as the koru opens, so too does the person.
That whakatauki is about inspiring our students’ futures and transforming their lives. We believe that effective engagement in learning is based on the relationships we build with each of our students and on each student’s wellbeing. We do this so that, like a koru opening, each student will achieve to their full potential, will develop the personal values and competencies critical to successfully learning, living and contributing in society, and will transition successfully from Hagley to further learning, training or employment.
