Our educational philosophy

We believe each student’s educational experience should be characterised by three guiding principles that promote contemporary capabilities:

Excellence through honourwe want students to pursue personal excellence, to honour each other, to achieve their God-given potential and to give of their best.

Learning with purposewe wish to prepare all students to become lifelong learners who are creative, critical thinkers, collaborators and communicators, and who are multi-skilled, adaptable and innovative.

Growth through challenge we believe it is important that students are provided with opportunities to push themselves and be challenged to develop mastery in a supportive environment.

We aim to create learners who are:

  • self-directed, insightful investigators and learners
  • discerning, resourceful problem solvers and implementers
  • adept, creative producers and contributors
  • open, responsive communications and facilitators
  • principled, resilient leaders and collaborators
  • caring, steadfast supporters and advocates

There are five central elements to our positive learning culture:

  • high expectations
  • positive relationships
  • lifelong learning
  • responsive teaching
  • powerful partnerships.

Our Teaching and Learning Framework provides more information about these elements.
