We live the values as a part of every day

Our Values are a code of care and respect that all our students and staff are encouraged to adopt in their daily lives. These core values are the backbone of our culture and provide a guide for 'how we do things around here'.

I respect the dignity of others and treat them with consideration and courtesy, just as I would like to be treated myself.

As a person with integrity I stand up for what I know is right. I am honest and sincere with myself and others. I do the right thing even if it isn’t the easiest or most popular choice.

I look for opportunities to be of service to others. I am thoughtful and do not wait to be asked to act in a caring way. I make a positive difference to my neighbours and the world.

I strive to give my best effort in all that I do. I have the courage to set my own goals, using determination and patience to fulfil my potential.

As a loving person, I show my love with thoughtful acts and kind words.
