RUDOLF STEINER SCHOOL TRUST (MANAWATU)/ MATARIKI KINDERGARTEN
CODE OF ETHICS
The healthy social life is found when in the mirror of each human being the whole community
finds its reflection; and when in the community the virtue of each one is living.
We recognise that each person is a whole being, with inherent integrity and dignity. We aim, through all our human
interactions, to enhance the integrity and dignity of each person.
All persons are of equal and special importance, and we aim to treat all fairly and justly.
We aim to provide good governance, following principles of strong leadership, transparency and accountability.
To maintain confidentiality and respect privacy.
Within this framework the following are expected:
Central to participation in the community, as parents, teachers, trustees or committee members, is the commitment
to nurturing, honouring and protecting the wonder of childhood.
That we are open to listening to all viewpoints, and should respect and uphold others' integrity.
That we are loyal to our community in order to safeguard the special character of the education, and to maintain
its continuity and growth.
Demonstration of respect for each other requires empathy and understanding each other's journey.
[To be reviewed annually, with other policies, in the 4th term.]
