INTRODUCTION
This School is a registered and accredited non-goverment multi-campus School established to provide a quality education to the community and, in particular, to Brethren students.

The school provides a vibrant and stimulating learning environment where students feel safe and secure and students are recognised as maturing into young men and women able to make sincere judgments about the world around them, and their place in it.

The School’s Ethos, Values Statement and Guiding Principles govern the School, and are reflected in a series of policies, procedures and handbooks which have been developed to meet statutory and registration requirements and are to be adhered to in all aspects of the operation of the School and its Campuses.

ETHOS
At this School, students are encouraged to develop their full potential and acquire the discipline of learning how to learn, while upholding Christian teachings and beliefs.
The truth and authority of the Holy Bible and strong family values underpin the commitment of the School to provide quality in every facet of education - curriculum, teachers, facilities, management and discipline - in a safe and caring environment.

VALUES STATEMENT
In coming to this School each student, parent and staff member shall uphold the values of the School which include:

 • Integrity – uprightness, honesty and decorous conduct, governed by the Holy Bible;
 • Care & Compassion - kindness, consideration and generosity to all;
 • Respect – for all people, property, opinions and authority
 • Responsibility – for our actions, progress and environment; and
 • Commitment – to self-discipline and the pursuit of excellence

SCHOOL MOTTO “LEARNING TO LEARN”

The School is committed to creating and delivering learning programs that meet the educational needs of each student, and to nurture the attitudes and skills necessary for the continual learning and personal growth throughout life. “Learning to Learn” means to use learning as a tool whereby students are equipped with the ability to think critically, process information perceptually, analyse data accurately, and evaluate situations intelligently in order that they fulfil their true potential.
