PB4L Programme

Acknowledging students who are AMPT

Hato Petera College launched the PB4L programme to our whanau at the Powhiri for new students at the beginning of the year. Part of the PB4L programme is to promote a core set of defining values which shapes our practice and behaviour. Under the guidance of Pa Ryan and the document Te Waka o Petera, our core defining values were established as being Aroha (love), Mana (Honour), Pono (Integrity) and Tika (Justice). These four values have the handy acronym AMPT and staff and students are now AMPT for learning at Hato Petera College.

Students who practice AMPT behaviour in the kura are acknowledged in special ways. Firstly, students are given AMPT stickers to place in their diaries as an immediate recognition for practicing Aroha, Mana, Pono or Tika. Secondly, if students acquire 10 stickers, or if they show outstanding behaviour or achievement, they are awarded an AMPT certificates. AMPT certificates are presented at special AMPT assemblies held three times each term. Third, students can work towards long term acknowledgements by accumulating certificates over their years spent at the College. After the first 25 certificates are gained, students achieve the status of being AROHA, after the next 25 they become MANA, then PONO, and finally TIKA when they receive 100 certificates.

Our first AMPT assembly was held on Friday the 22nd of February. It was a joyful and exciting occasion with a significant number of students being acknowledged for gaining an AMPT certificates. Our second assembly will be held on Friday the 22nd of March and our final assembly for Term 1 will be on Friday 12th April. Whanau is welcome to attend these AMPT celebrations.
