Student Engagement and Wellbeing

Our values are:

  • Compassion - displaying empathy for others and a desire to help.
  • Courage - the ability to face difficulty, uncertainty, or pain without being overcome by fear or being deflected from a chosen course of action.
  • Curiosity - a desire to know or learn something.
