Freemans Bay School Vision

Our vision statement was developed through consultation with our community. We surveyed parents, staff and students and had a focus group to help pull these ideals together.


'Ma te Kura o Waiatarau hei whakahaere he kura ahuru mo nga tamariki katoa. Kia tu pakari ai ratau ahakoa pewhea te uaua o nga mahi ka tu tangata ratau katoa.'

In a safe and challenging learning environment we will foster the creative and critical thinking skills necessary to contribute to society.

Our students will be well prepared for their future.

They will be expected to develop the learning capabilities that our community values.

Our students will:
  • Be Knowledgeable
  • Be Thinkers
  • Have a Can Do attitude
  • Be Good
  • Collaborate
