Vision, Ethos & Values
At Olive Secondary School we aim to go beyond the norm by recognising and building on the skills, talent and attributes of each person through an enhanced personalised learning plan in a stimulating environment using differentiation, intervention support, and target setting to accommodate everyone’s learning needs. We aim to inspire and promote the value of learning and self-worth among students and staff to maximise everyone’s potential to ensure that they are adequately equipped to meet the challenges of education, work and life.
We value ourselves as unique human beings capable of spiritual, moral, intellectual and physical growth and development.
Based on these values we should:
Develop an understanding of our own characters, strengths and weaknesses.
Develop self-respect and self-discipline.
Clarify the meaning and purpose in our lives and decide, based on this, how we believe that our lives should be lived.
Make responsible use of our talents, rights and opportunities
Strive, throughout life, for knowledge, wisdom and understanding.
Take responsibility, within our capability, for our own life.
We value others for them not only for what they have or what they can do for us. We value relationships as fundamental to the development and fulfilment of ourselves and others, and to the good of the community.
Based on these values, we should:
Respect others, including children
Show others they are valued
Earn loyalty, trust and confidence
Work cooperatively with others
Respect the privacy and property of others
Resolve disputes peacefully
