School Vision:Our school’s vision is to prepare our students to become active, engaged and responsible citizens of the local and global community. We aim to prepare our students to contend with a very dynamic 21st century, in which creativity, cooperative work, connectedness to the world and adaptability are key features. We aspire to provide a consistent contemporary approach to teaching and learning aligned to best-practice instructional strategies in a purposeful learning environment.
Our values are based on our desire to nurture an environment based on the development of positive relationships between all members of the school and wider community, and the pursuit of excellence with an emphasis on persistence and effort in achieving personal best.
The programs of, and teaching in, the school both support and promote the principles and practices of Australian democracy including a commitment to:
An elected government.
The rule of law.
Equal rights for all before the law.
Freedom of religion.
Freedom of speech and association.
The values of openness and tolerance.
Statements which affirm the school’s principles are found in the vision of the school and in documents such as our information handbooks.
Enactment of school philosophy
In all documents, in all practice by students and teachers, in work with the School Council and the community, in all teaching and learning programs, in all school initiatives, in all internal and external interactions, in all organisational structures and practices the vision of the school will sit at the centre and there will be expectations about all work aligning with the school vision. Regular evaluation processes will be in place to measure performance in all areas of the school with respect to the implementation of the vision and values of the school.
A detailed list of school policies will sit within this vision to support our philosophy.
To equip the school with the best human and physical resources to maximise the opportunities for all members of the school community to achieve excellence.
