Our Mission and Values

Burnside High School is committed to the delivery of the New Zealand Curriculum. We are supportive of the curriculum’s stated vision, which is to educate and help develop young New Zealanders.

At Burnside we provide a safe, positive, inclusive learning environment. It is here that students gain the knowledge, skills and personal qualities to choose their pathways in life. Our diversity is our strength and a source of pride. It means that we respect, understand and celebrate the things that make each of us unique. By nurturing wellbeing and relationships, we create real connections – and the result, inevitably, is personal excellence.
