LEARNING

Our Vision for Learning...

Our vision is for every child to be able to go for GOLD, now and in the future. 

At Arrowtown School, gold means more than winning. GOLD is about guardianship, opportunity, learning and determination.

Guardianship    caring for self, others and the environment. Protecting the past, present and future.

Opportunity       having skills, knowledge and a “can do” attitude to pursue or create opportunities

Learning            knowing how to learn: reflect, question, think, wonder, be self aware, connect

Determination   perseverance, resilience
