Our Strategic Plan

Strategic Plan 2018 - 2020

At Kaingaroa School we endeavour to provide an effective education. This means we are continuously looking at ways to refine and enhance our practice so that it best prepares our children for their future in the 21st century. We strongly value a collaborative approach, seeking our board, staff, students and community ideas to shape the current goals we work towards achieving.
