Our TOTARA Values

At Hikuai School the staff and students alike continually strive to live by our TOTARA values.

 

TRUSTWORTHY - ORGANIZED - THOUGHTFUL - AWARE - RESPECTFUL & RESILIENT - AMBITIOUS

 


The TOTARA Cup

Pupils who demonstrate these values are recognised by teachers and their peers and receive a 'Totara Leaf'. The student's name is written on it as well as the value they have demonstrated. The student then places the leaf on the values boards outside the library. The pupil who has received the most Totara leaves at the end of each 3 week block is awarded the Totara Cup at our School Assembly. The student who earns the most Totara leaves over the course of the school year has their name engraved on the the cup and is presented it at our end of year prize giving.

 

The Totara Cup and associated values are an important part of our school life and help us strive towards our pinnacle.
