Vision & Values
At Pinewood Primary School we endeavour to nurture and educate each individual student. Students will be active and responsible participants in their own learning through a broad range of experiences. We will provide a safe and supportive environment with high expectations, which empowers students to develop into successful 21st Century Learners.
The following core values reflect the beliefs we hold about how children learn, how our school will operate, and how we relate to one another.
RESPECT – having regard for self, others and property
SELF-CONFIDENCE – having faith and trust in yourself
INTEGRITY – being honest and fair
RESPONSIBILITY – being accountable for your actions and words
OPTIMISM – being hopeful and believing that good will come of things
In our community, these values are demonstrated when:
- Students have the opportunity to learn in a positive, caring environment and are encouraged to become self-motivated, life-long learners.
- Teaching and learning programs support students to develop a range of skills and strategies that enable them to be critical and creative thinkers.
- Students are encouraged to work co-operatively and collaboratively with their peers and other members of the school community, and to be active and responsible citizens.
