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.
