Smart Values

Smart Values are underpinned by our Manaiakalani Kaupapa and supported by our Kawa of Care in each of our cybersmart categories.

The values below were identified by Manaiakalani Schools to reflect what we believe it means to be Cybersmart.

The specific way in which Smart Values are lived and learned will be guided by the values of our individual schools and their community.

  • Learning | Ako: The act of acquiring new, or modifying and reinforcing, existing knowledge, behaviours, skills, values

  • Hope | Tūmanakotanga: Our aspirations and expectations of the future

  • Service | Kaitiakitanga : The act of helping, showing kindness and community

  • Co-operation | Kotahitanga: Collaborating with others, being part of a community, sharing common goals and interactions

  • Honesty | Ngākau Pono: Showing integrity, being truthful and acting with morals

  • Respect | Whakakaute: To act in a way that shows consideration for oneself and the rights of others

  • Responsibility | Haepapa: Being accountable for our actions

  • Caring | Manaakitanga: To feel, think, and act in the interest of others and ourselves

  • Joy | Manahau: Finding happiness, having a sense of wellbeing
