The Rongotai Way is a set of values that governs the behaviour of members of the Rongotai College community and the relationships between members of the community.

The foundation of the Rongotai Way is an agreed set of values that was determined in 2014 after extensive consultation with the students, parents, staff and the community where the values that were of greatest importance were identified.

BEST is the acronym that we use for the values of

  • Being Respectful
  • Encouraging Brotherhood
  • Striving for Excellence
  • Taking Pride

We have developed a deeper meaning of these values and use them as the basis of many conversations within the school.

It is our belief that all members of the college community should adhere to The Rongotai Way and it is having a very significant, positive influence in the culture of our college, that will in turn produce an even better place for students to live and learn.
