Fairton School Values

​At Fairton School we believe that the development of a child’s character is just as important as their learning across curriculum subjects. To reinforce this our school has four key values.

PRIDE/WHAKAHIHI – Respect for our school, others and ourselves.

INTEGRITY/WHAKAPONO – Responsibility for doing the right thing.

EXCELLENCE/HIRUNGA – Doing our best in every situation.

STRENGTH/KAHA – Resilience and perseverance. Not giving up.

We seek to “live and breathe” these values in our school. You will see that the initial letter of our values spells the word PIES. Just as with the humble pie it’s what’s inside that counts.

Our School motto is:


Learning that makes a positive difference to our children sets them up well for the lifelong learning journey we are all on.
