The PC way document brings to life our vision of creating a ‘Caring Community of Great Learners’ and illustrates our commitment to achieving the highest possible equitable outcomes for each of our learners.
To do this, we apply the principles and practices of the PC Way as we develop knowledgeable, passionate, confident life-long learners who can effectively communicate their ideas. We encourage curiosity, creativity, critical thinking and problem-solving. We know that these competencies and attitudes, together with our CARE values, will help equip young people to be successful in navigating the challenges of an ever-changing future.
We also support our young people to know themselves, to know their place in bicultural Aotearoa/New Zealand, to embrace diversity and to become connected global citizens. We value our ākonga becoming actively involved, compassionate members of society and being socially, culturally and environmentally aware.
The PC Way is built around six principles that act as navigation tools that guide the decisions we make around teaching and learning at Paraparaumu College.
