Vision and Beliefs

 


Our Vision

The school's vision has been placed in all classrooms to remind us all that it is to be reflected in every aspect of the day to day operations and management of our school. For students, it helps them to appreciate that this a team effort and we are all working for the same outcomes.

In 2013, following extensive consultation and collaboration with staff, students and the school community, our vision was established and can be condensed into three words:

             Aspire       Confidence        Respect
