Learning for Life

Vision

 

Warranwood Primary School provides a rich learning environment underpinned by positive relationships where individuals are valued and supported to realise their potential and become confident, productive and resilient citizens. The aims adopted by our school community for our students are consistent with those of the 'Melbourne Declaration on Educational Goals for Young Australians' of 2008:

 

To develop the essential skills for twenty-first century learners- in literacy, numeracy, and information and communication technology, thinking, creativity, teamwork and communication.

 

To develop individuals who can manage their own wellbeing, relate well to others, make informed decisions about their lives, become citizens who behave with ethical integrity, relate to and communicate across cultures, work for the common good and act with responsibility at local, regional and global levels.


We will work towards achieving these aims in a dynamic learning environment that challenges and extends our students.

 

 

Values

 

In 2015 we introduced RUIn, which supports our three core values of Respect, Understanding and Integrity. 
We believe that positive relationships are essential for an effective learning community. Relationships must be based on shared values, which are the strong beliefs of our school community and are used to lead our lives. These shared values are:

 

  • Respect: treating others with consideration and regard,

  • Responsibility: personal, social, civic and environmental – being accountable for one’s actions including self-discipline, resolving differences, contributing to the school community and preserving the environment,

  • Care and Compassion: caring for oneself and showing interest in, concern and care for others,

  • Honesty and Trustworthiness: being truthful and sincere, and ensuring consistency between words and actions,

  • Understanding, Tolerance and Inclusion: recognising and accepting the differences in ability, race, religion and beliefs of others,

  • Fair Go: treating everyone fairly at all times,

  • Doing Your Best: a personal achievement goal that is expected from all, and

  • Integrity: the principle of acting in accordance with the shared values.


These values are synthesised in the concept of R-U-In?

Respect, including fair go


Understanding, including tolerance and inclusion, care and compassion

Integrity, including responsibility, honesty and trustworthiness, doing your best


Our school values create a nurturing, harmonious environment where all members of our community are respectful of each other.
