A-Z Parent Information
As well as a seamless P-10 curriculum, the school offers strong values education and pastoral care programs based on positive education and Restorative Justice Practices, an emphasis on relationships-building and both physical and psychological wellbeing in a safe, well-structured school environment, and highly effective student leadership teams involved in student empowerment and service learning.
The Wanniassa School Junior Campus Values Program is designed to create a positive culture and common language that allows the school community to interact in a way that promotes health and wellbeing for all stakeholders. The program has evolved over time into a positive process that allows effective interaction and communication among staff, students and parents at Wanniassa School and underpins our caring and supportive culture. It is based on the Federal Government’s Nine Values for Australian schooling. Care and Compassion, Doing Your Best, Freedom, Honesty/Trustworthiness, Fair Go, Integrity, Respect, Responsibility and Understanding/Tolerance/Inclusion. Resilience is added as a focus to support the wellbeing of all students. Teachers are always ‘on the lookout’ for any student who is displaying any one of the school’s 10 Values.
This explicit teaching of the values underpins the whole school core values of Responsibility, Respect and Hard Work.
We say NO WAY to Bullying and we endeavour to empower all students with the skills to understand what it is, how to report it and how to be an effective bystander.
