Beliefs and values

What are our beliefs?

What do we value? 

At Sunshine Beach State School we value:

Individual Responsibility

We believe we are each responsible for our learning and our behaviour.


We value being trusted and trusting others.

Quality Expectations

We maintain a focus on quality and high expectations to achieve it.


We believe in balancing success with challenge when designing learning experiences.


We incorporate choice into our programs to encourage ownership and commitment.


We adopt an optimistic approach believing we can help make a difference in learners' lives.


We believe all learners can learn and provide programs appropriate to an individual learner's needs.


We encourage co-operative rather than competitive learning environments.

We have asked the questions, 'What would we see teachers and learners doing/not doing?' and regularly examine our practices to ensure they reflect our beliefs and values.

Our values are a source of constancy of purpose and provide a premise upon which to act. e.g. 'Is what we're doing in line with what we believe?
