Mission and values

The four school values are respect, responsibility, effort and safety. Everything we do is governed by these values.

The school policies and objectives are designed to provide a warm, secure, achievement-orientated learning environment in which the child is guided towards realisation of his/her potential, both as a student and as a well-adjusted social being.

We are committed to: 

  • Promoting the best interests of students.
  • Ensuring our actions are of the very best quality.
  • Accepting personal accountability.

 We believe:

  • In fostering a student’s self-esteem is necessary for a student to be happy and successful in school and life.
  • Learning experiences should meet the individual needs of every child.
  • Children should be given the opportunity to become responsible and independent learners.
  • Learners need to feel safe, valued and respected.
  • That home, school and community have a joint responsibility to create an environment and the experiences to enable all individuals to develop their potential.
  • In building a sense of school pride.
  • In respect for the rights and needs of others.
  • The decision making process works best through consultation and negotiation.

 For effective learning to occur we will develop in our students the skills:

  • Of self-knowledge and self-esteem.
  • To learn.
  • To transfer learning.
  • To adapt readily to new circumstances and environments.
  • To solve problems.
  • To work with others.
  • To manage technology.
  • To create and manage own work.

Respect

Recognition and tolerance of the different roles and responsibilities of school community members will be demonstrated through appropriate communications and actions.

Responsibility

All members of the school community are responsible and accountable for their actions and will demonstrate socially appropriate behaviour choices and acceptance of consequences.

Effort

The primary aim of schooling is student learning.  All members of the school community will apply themselves to the best of their ability in the promotion of this goal.

Safety

The physical and emotional safety of self and others is a prime consideration in all practices undertaken in the school and its programs.
