Educating for eternity through GROWTH is the foundational concept for the delivery of all aspects of the curriculum, both the sum of its parts and the underlying concept of GROWTH provide the analogy for life-long learning and connectedness. Weaving through the GROWTH area are two elements, growing disciples and celebrating GROWTH. Growing disciples is the concept of developing the skills of students to enable them to be disciples of God, being discipled by others and in turn discipling others. Celebrating GROWTH is allowing time for the recognition of achievement in all areas of the GROWTH vision, both small and great. As a Seventh-day Adventist School in New Zealand we embrace and commit to the vision of GROWTH as outlined below.
Godliness- becoming connected with God and choosing His way as our way
Rich Relationships- honoring others above self and connecting with them because they are precious to God
Ownership of Mastery- giving our personal best to develop our God given talents in pursuit of excellence
Wisdom In Decision Making- choosing discernment and a positive attitude
Transformational Learning- nurturing personal transformation and becoming agents of blessing and change in our community
Harvest- pursuing goals that matter with intention and purpose
