Our school motto was developed in consultation with the Parent Steering Committee who met regularly during the school planning phase in 2015.
Discover: this is to represent discovering your own strengths and weaknesses, it’s about learning, working together and values.
Believe: is to use these strengths, work on the weaknesses, believe in yourself, believe that you can do it, it’s about resilience and self-confidence.
Achieve: this is about striving to do your best, always aiming high, setting high standards. It’s also not just about the end product but also celebrating the journey.
Communities: this is plural as it relates to the home community, school community, the broader community and the global community. This is about giving back to the community and making it a better place for everyone. We all have a part to play. Its about putting the three areas together (Discover, Believe, Achieve) and applying this to our communities.
