Te Rapa H.E.A.R.T. incorporates the school values we already have and is part of everything we do at school. This term we will continue to develop our class understanding of each aspect of H.E.A.R.T. as well as investigating well known New Zealander’s who display these values in the public arena. If you can think of any as a family; please share these with your child.
