The Education Directorate's vision is that all young people in the ACT learn, thrive and are equipped with the skills to lead fulfilling, productive and responsible lives. The Directorate values are honesty, excellence, fairness and respect. The vision and values are reflected through our school philosophy.
Our vision is that:
All children are unique with individualised learning and developmental needs.
Learning Environments foster differentiated learning, whereby students become equipped with developmentally appropriate knowledge, understandings and skills to lead fulfilling, productive and responsible lives.
Child-centred, personalised learning is the key to authentic engagement.
Children are active participants in their learning by investigating, constructing, creating and exploring their worlds through purposeful, planned and intentional learning experiences.
Development of the whole child is achieved by meeting their academic, social and emotional needs, building resilient and global citizens of the future.
