Classroom Teaching Environment

The school's vision is foremost in our minds when teaching the students "Explore, Challenge, Learn! Be the best we can."  We also follow a set of values, the 5Cs -Communicative, Creative, Confident, Connected and Caring.

That teachers work to develop in their students. Whilst there are Ministry of Education and school guidelines, each teacher will have different processes and initiatives in order to manage the classroom and school life. Teaching staff have regular meetings to discuss the curriculum and share ideas but they will have different ways of handling certain things, including homework, behaviour, parent interviews, daily timetable of learning. At Mellons Bay School we are lucky to attract a high standard of qualified teachers and we fully support their professional judgement in the classroom. If you have any concerns or would like further insight into teaching processes, please feel to discuss with your child's teacher or the Principal.
