We endorse the Australian Government Values for Australian Schooling initiative and strongly believe that the link between values education and student wellbeing is powerful. The National Framework for Values Education in Australian Schools states that 'values education can strengthen students' self esteem, optimism and commitment to personal fulfilment; and help students exercise ethical judgement and social responsibility.'
Our school's values education program consists of the following core values:
Of importance is the fact that across our school community (students, staff and parents), we 'walk and talk' the same language relating to our school values and the expectations that go with consistent demonstration of these values. In other words, there is a general expectation that all members of our school community are responsible for demonstrating each of the values which should underpin everything we do. How we are as adults (staff & parents) significantly impacts on students so modelling.
