Vision and Values

At the opening of Stage Three of the School in 2002, Mr. Peter Moyes spoke of his wish that a student at the School named in his honour would display: “Personal excellence with compassion for others”. Accordingly the School wishes, in the Anglican tradition to foster, model and build the following values within its students, staff and wider community:

  • Knowledge & Insight: The pursuit of truth through organised learning which is conducted in a manner emphasising collaboration and honesty.
  • Equality & Compassion: Where all have the same value and rights as others in such a way that each is able to be oneself and enable others to be themselves in a spirit of equity, trust and the acceptance of diversity.
  • Integration & Wholeness: Where all work to develop the inner capacity to organise the mind, body and spirit into a co-ordinated, harmonious whole.
  • Confidence, Competence and Responsibility: Where all have realistic confidence that they have the skill to achieve in a positive manner, and are personally accountable for the development and good use of those skills, exhibiting respect for the rights of others.
  • Self-worth: Where all know that others they respect and esteem know them and affirm that they are worthy of their care, respect and protection.

Members of the School community are encouraged to explore Christian beliefs, to think, to feel, and to respect differences, without denigration of other identifiable value systems. We aim to develop each person’s faith within a community framework, to assist each in their own spiritual and social development.

The School aims to focus on the needs of the whole person – intellectual, aesthetic, moral, spiritual, emotional, physical and social. These are incorporated in the total range of activities experienced at the School, commonly known as curriculum. Curriculum includes the formal academic component of school education, developing knowledge and insight into the world of learning and the integration of experiences from a range of sources such as the Co-Curricular program.

  • All students are able to learn.
  • Learning is best conducted in a safe environment, where mistakes can be made without ridicule.
  • The focus of School life must be a holistic one that includes the full and balanced development of each member of the School community.
  • A healthy balance must exist between the demands of School and home life for all students, staff and parents.
  • Learning is best when the learner integrates experience, imagination, information and application.
  • Regular feedback is vital for teachers, students and parents.
  • Students are recognised for their uniqueness.

Our sense of community is built around the quality of relationships between staff, students and parents and therefore is partially dependent upon staff welcoming parents into the School as much as possible, and associating with them on other occasions. Students need to communicate clearly and work with other students, staff and parents. Parents need to be involved with the School as much as possible, taking an active interest in the development of their own and others’ children.

Our School is committed to demonstrating an open and inclusive approach to all aspects of School life. Entry to the School is non-selective and the School seeks to demonstrate a democratic approach to the education and participation of its students in all School activities. The Anglican tradition and the School’s own Vision and Values for its students reinforce this commitment to an inclusive School environment.

As a proud member of the Anglican Schools Commission system of schools, the foundation principles of the Anglican Schools Commission have been used to develop the ‘Vision, Values and Beliefs’ of our School.
