The Catlins Area School Vision

Connect, Learn, Grow.

Tēnā koutou,

The School Board has considered the information from our consultation process and from this have determined a clear interpretation for both the vision statement; Connect, Learn, Grow and the TCAS Way. Together these combine to make up the school vision. The board has also finalised the strategic goals for 2023 which form the foundation of the strategic planning and from which the annual plan will be created. Please get in touch if you have any questions.

Ngā mihi,
