True North Values

The True North Values are an integral part of our school culture creating a common language in guiding behaviours and social skills development. These values are taught explicitly by staff at a level appropriate to the age of the students.

Respect:
Thinking and acting in a way that shows others you care about their feelings and their well-being
In our school community these values are demonstrated when:

• Learners are the centre of our teaching and learning
• Our teaching and learning programs encourage deep understanding, enable the students to make connections and develop a sense of the importance of learning.
• Students and teachers are supported and have the opportunity to work in a positive and caring environment
• Students are expected to take responsibility for their learning and behavior.
• Students are encouraged to achieve their best through effort and taking responsibility for their learning and behaviour

Responsibility:
We all own our learning and behaviour

Empathy:
We seek to understand and take into account the perspective of others in a situation of need and we accept and value difference in others

Cooperation:
Teamwork in learning together to achieve the best possible outcomes for all

Integrity:
In our words and actions, we seek to listen and ascertain the truth upon which we can base our decisions and actions
