Our school vision is 'together we encourage, challenge and inspire while fostering a love of learning'.
The learning vision is represented by our Challenge Tree. Collaboration, Communication, Creativity and Critical Thinking (The 4 Cs) are woven through all teaching and learning programmes.
The 4Cs are cross curricular, interconnected learning skills that are cultivated through providing diverse learning experiences for our students.
A teaching and learning framework guides our tamariki in recognising and understanding each of these skills. This framework supports the identification of strengths and areas for future development as learners ‘grow’ at Greenacres.
Our 4C curriculum caters for the diverse needs of our tamariki, are in line with the aspirations of our community and reflects the bicultural and multicultural contexts of Aotearoa New Zealand.
We believe that the ability to bring creativity, critical thinking, communication and collaborative skills to any situation is vital now and into the future.
