GTS Vision and Values: ACE and FIRE

We put our heads together to think about F.I.R.E and A.C.E. :) 
We had lots of fun and lots of thinking!

Behind the scenes.... or how we worked together to understand F.I.R.E. and A.C.E. better....and what do they mean to us. We also linked our school vision and values to our Class Treaty. 


It is OK to make mistakes because we LEARN from them!

Mistakes are powerful!

Please follow a link shared below to watch a video about our brain power. Remember that each of us is unique! Our mistakes help us get smarter!! Be confident to take a risk because you will definitely learn from it!

Our Class Treaty

Students have been working very thoughtfully to generate valuable ideas about how they want to live and learn in Room 5. After a number of very interesting and meaningful discussions in small groups, we put our ideas and expectations together, and everyone of us agreed to the Treaty.

It is a living document, just like the Treaty of Waitangi!

In Room 5, all students know what to expect. They also enjoy their learning better because they feel comfortable and confident in their learning environment.😃
