Pinewood Philosophy

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.

Core Values

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-CONFIDENCEhaving 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.
