Vision & Values
Templestowe Heights Primary School provides an inclusive and collaborative learning environment for students, staff and families, that promotes high expectations for lifelong learners, embracing and contributing to local and global communities.
Templestowe Heights Primary School operates under the following school values:
• Respect - We value people, property and the environment
• Persistence - We always try our best and never give up until we have achieved it
• Courage – We continue to take up the challenge of learning even when things get hard
• Responsibility - We accept responsibility for our own learning and behaviour and can be relied on to do the right thing
These values are fundamental to the culture of Templestowe Heights Primary School and are the underpinning principles for all school-based activity and decision-making. They provide a framework and whole school language for the development of all relationships within the school - students, teachers, parents and the community.
These values will be prominently displayed in all classrooms and throughout all areas of the school and constantly referred to in all aspects of school life.
The ‘Start Up’ program at the start of the year focuses on introducing the values and related concepts to all children from Prep to Year 6.
Our weekly ‘High Flyer’ Awards presented at our Monday School Assembly promote our school values.
