Cornerstone Values - Term 3 - 2019

The Cornerstone Value this term is Respect

Taupo-nui-a-Tia College is an accredited Cornerstone Values school and was the first secondary school in the country to gain this accreditation.  There are eight Cornerstone Values in total and every term we focus on one of these values.  The eight values are: Honesty and Truthfulness, Kindness, Duty, Compassion, Responsibility, Consideration and Concern for Others, Respect and Obedience.

 The Cornerstone Value for Term 3 is Respect which is defined as:

 “Willingness to treat with courtesy; to hold in high regard; to honour; to care about yourself and others.”

 Treat everyone you meet as if they were the most important person in the world.

  • Make the most of yourself for that is all there is of you.
  • Respectful behaviour is the oil that keeps a class working well.
  • If you want to be respected, you must respect yourself.
  • Treat others the way you would want to be treated.
  • Respect the right to be listened to, learn and be safe in our classrooms.

 As a parent you can be proud that your child is part of a Cornerstone Values school and we appreciate the support you give from home in emphasising these values.

 If you are new to the school you will notice that the college is proud of its Cornerstone Values accreditation and displays the Cornerstone Values logo prominently.
