Vision, Purpose and Values

Our Vision

'To be a beacon school that cultivates a learning and collaborative community through English and Italian.'

Our Mission Statement

'We believe that ALL children have a right to develop, grow and learn in a society where each individual is valued and respected; where each individual in turn, values, respects and contributes positively to others and the environment which we all share.'

Our Purpose

  • To develop the whole child as a confident, resilient and articulate young person able to positively contribute as a bilingual citizen in a global world.
  • To deliver a high quality curriculum integrating information technology, The Arts and sustainability for Yarralumla children to experience challenge and success at all ages and developmental levels.
  • To foster welcoming and inclusive partnerships with Yarralumla parents and the wider Italian community to maximise opportunity and extension for all.

Our Values

Our values are underpinned by Positive Behaviours for Learning (PBL). We model and display our values in classrooms, the playground, the hall and corridors. Our focus is the S.T.A.R acronym that stands for Safe, Team Player, Active Learner and Respectful.
