Our School Values

Values are the qualities which guide and show in the way we go about our school work and relationships with others as our Ruru School Community.

Our values were decided by us as a community – students, staff, board and families.

Values we share:

  • Excellence
  • Respect
  • Integrity
  • Inclusion
  • Manaakitanga

Our 3Bs represent our Ruru Specialist School values in action
