KC Kawa

Kuranui College is all about developing good people who will become successful and valuable members of their communities. We aim to help each student to be the best they can be.

The way we expect all students and staff to learn, work and interact is summed up as “KC Kawa – the way we expect each other to be.”

The college is founded on five core values: Te Hiringa, Manaakitanga, Aroha, Mana Tangata and Auahatanga.

For each value we have four clear expectations:

We are punctual and ready to learn

We strive to be the best we can be

We resist distractions

We keep going when things get hard

We respect the mana of Kuranui College and its people

We speak and act politely

We treat others as we would like to be treated

We wear our uniform with pride

We care for people

We are kind

We allow others to be themselves

We do not hurt others physically or emotionally

We do the right thing

We are truthful and can be trusted

We take pride in our learning, our actions and our school

We stand up for what we believe in

We try to understand new ideas and knowledge

We consider different points of view

We try to think our way through a problem

We use our talents and abilities to improve our learning
