Quality education that develops the personal excellence of every student

At James Cook We Value

Maanaki | Care

Care requires our staff and students to demonstrate mutual tolerance, honesty, integrity and respect to others. At James Cook High School we proactively work at creating and encouraging meaningful, caring relationships within a structure that supports personal growth.

Atawhai | Contribution

Confidence comes from knowing what you can offer others, the value you provide and acting in a way that conveys this to others. At James Cook High school we encourage positive dialogue and learning opportunities that support the growth of student’s confidence and personal wellbeing.

Nanaiore | Endeavour

Endeavour means “to try to do ones best with a reasonable amount of effort and have something to strive for”. Identifying individual student’s talents and abilities – encouraging students to persevere and take advantage of opportunities offered by the school is something our teachers work towards every day.

Ako | Learn

Change is a constant in our world and the ability to learn new skills and acquire new knowledge is vital for success at any age or occupation. At James Cook we set up our students to adopt an ‘always learning’ approach to their learning endeavours.
