Why are our Values Important to You?
Our school wide approach to supporting students is framed around four key values; learning, safety, respect and opportunity.
These values underpin our planning and support of students, but also give us a framework with which to recognise great effort and improvement. During this term we have been trialling a process of ‘Shout Outs’. These acknowledge effort from our students to improve, but also connect our school values to a specific behaviour, so that our students know exactly what it was that we noticed. This helps our students be aware of what they need to do to be successful in school. Over the last 6 weeks we have awarded over 70 of these awards to students across all groups.
We think that it’s really important to recognize effort but also to highlight why values are important at SRCS. With this in mind we’d like to ask for your assistance. We are currently creating a display that will highlight the great ways that our students are living our values every day. To do this we want to get some quotes from students, parents/carers and community about why the values of the school are important to you. We’d love to invite you to be part of gathering these quotes.
Simply click this link (https://forms.gle/ha28uVSrgcq5Kxp99 ) and complete the simple question about why a certain value is important to you. Answers don’t need to be long and you are welcome to complete the form as many times as you like. We’ll include some of the responses in the display along with those of students, staff and community, to make sure that the language of values is reflected powerfully by the voices of the community.
