Our Values

“Values are part of the everyday curriculum – encouraged, modelled and explored.”

The New Zealand Curriculum 2007

As a school we believe that values build character which produces behaviour that is beneficial for the individual, others and the community.  Values enhance the well being of all and as such at Ashburton Intermediate we acknowledge values displayed by our students.

The four main Values that we as a school embrace are:-
