Our Vision and Values

Our Vision Statement is taken from one of
​King Tāwhiao’s visions:

Maaku anoo e hanga tooku nei whare
We shall fashion our own house

 

At Waimahia this means that we will
​’determine our own destiny’.

 

This vision of self-sufficiency and self-determination is one we have for our students. We believe that our students arrive at our gates with skills and knowledge that will hold them in good stead for the future. Through their years at Waimahia we aim to strengthen and enhance these skills and add to their knowledge of the world.

We believe that our students will leave Waimahia Intermediate equipped with the knowledge and ways of thinking that will enable them to make positive decisions for learning and life.
