Core Behaviours

The Core Behaviours is made up of two components merged: The Habits of Mind and some highly valued Māori Culture qualities. Our Core Behaviours are intended to guide and develop both personal and cultural characteristics of our learners and educators at all levels.

The purpose of our Core Behaviours is to help our students show an understanding of behaviour and situations, and to become skilful at using this knowledge.

The Core Behaviours support us to develop a “way we be” culture for our learners and our educators, that is socially and culturally responsive. At Carlton School we have a strong desire for our learners to demonstrate empathy, aroha, calmness, precision, mauritau, creativeness to name a few. It is an ambitious pursuit of excellence to assist our learners to always strive to be their best both now and in their futures.
