School life is shaped by the values Terra Nova instills in its pupils. These values act as a code of conduct for pupils and teachers at the school. The values are:
to be Well Mannered.
Demonstration and appreciation of these values is woven into daily life at the school. Spiritually, the school’s values are based on the teachings of the Christian faith. The wellbeing of the Terra Nova pupils and the school’s community is at the heart of all that the school does.
