MANAAKITANGA

CARING  SUPPORTING  NURTURING

Manaakitanga means the process of showing kindness, respect, generosity and caring for others. At RIS we have developed a comprehensive School Wide Awards system to help promote and recognise students achievements in these areas. These awards motivate the students to demonstrate the 3Rs in all areas of their learning and help foster Manaakitanga throughout the school.

Developing a strong sense of self-respect can help you fulfill your potential, develop healthy relationships, and make everyone around you see you as a person who is worthy of respect.

02. Respect for Others

Develop an understanding of the importance of respectful behavior and become aware of the many ways in which we can show respect toward each other.

03. Responsibility for your Actions

Taking responsibility for your actions and accepting the role you play in shaping your life and relationships is a vital trait of healthy development.
