Rolleston Spirit

Develop Self, Build Communities & Transform Futures

The qualities that make up the Rolleston Spirit identify the key values and dispositions that are important for our learners to develop during their time at Rolleston College. They focus on developing the individual learner’s awareness of self, community and future. These qualities are based in international research highlighting the key skills that are most valued in the workplace as well as attitudes required to flourish as an individual in the modern world.

By providing a learning environment that nurtures and challenges, supports and extends it is our aim that all learners will develop their social responsibility and their self-awareness through the fostering of and reflection on, these qualities. These qualities are closely aligned with the Vision, Principles and Values outlined in the New Zealand Curriculum (2007) that speak of developing learners who are confident, connected, actively involved, lifelong learners.
