The essence and intent of our School Vision is to be regarded as a leading, contemporary Australian primary school that is characterised by a compassionate and caring outlook. We are committed to specialising in creating and implementing programs that are aimed at developing our students to enable them to become remarkable young Australians.
The professionalism of our staff and their commitment to excellence, service, and delivering a high quality learning environment is integral to the success of our students.
Our students are our absolute priority. We provide a safe and secure environment based on mutual respect and inclusivity to enable positive learning. We are a school that recognises that there are many different styles of learning. Teachers engage students in meaningful learning programs that are based on extensive planning and a ‘whole of school approach’.
Effective teaching practices and differentiated learning ensures the needs of the individual are being met and enhanced. Student achievement is the outcome of a quality partnership between home and school. The school community is inclusive and we communicate effectively. Everyone’s ideas are sought, valued, respected and considered. The strength of our school is a culture of collaboration. We create an environment of equity and respect where everyone works together towards the same goals. We celebrate success and acknowledge commitment and the sharing of ideas.
We are committed to the principle that leadership is the responsibility of all members of the school community. Leading by example, our leaders use exemplary interpersonal skills, possess sound knowledge of curriculum, are well organised and act with integrity. This is the vision of all members of our school and when we confront change and challenges we look to our vision, and core values for direction.
