School Values

Respect

 · We respect each other.

          Teachers and students speak respectfully to one another and actively listen.

          Forms of politeness are insisted upon.

 · We respect school property.

           We all care for our school property and equipment.

           This includes not accepting any forms of vandalism, disrespect, negligence, or lack of care.

 · We wear full school uniform.

           Our uniform is a source of school pride and is required by our Board of Trustees.

           We expect students to wear full school uniform at all times, including for Physical Education.

 

Personal Responsibility

· We play fairly.

            Fair play means positive sportsmanship, fair judgment, and inclusiveness.

 · We are healthy eaters.

             We are a Health Promoting School and pride ourselves on selling healthy food from our tuck shop. 

             Unhealthy items such as chewing gum, fizzy (or other high sugar drink), chips & confectionary will be taken away.

· We encourage students to leave valuable items at home.            

              If a student needs to bring one to school (like a cell phone) it should be left in the office during the school day for safe-keeping.   

 

 Passion

 · We are passionate that every student reaches high levels of learning.

          All students are thoughtfully placed within classes to achieve learning, and their varying needs are individually addressed.

 · We offer many extracurricular opportunities. 

          We encourage all students to be involved in school wide activities.

          If a student is passionate about something for which we do not have a group, we encourage them to start one up.

 ·  We focus on restorative justice.

          Every student has a voice and teachers apply restorative justice practices to eliminate violence.

          We will not accept putdowns, verbal, emotional or physical insults.

 · We allow students to leave the school grounds only with parental permission.

           Students must sign out at the office.

           We take our responsibility for our students at our school seriously.
