Our Mission

Our mission describes our school's purpose. Our vision depicts our desired future. The principles needed to achieve our mission and vision are articulated in our values. Finally, the actions we need to demonstrate to make our mission, vision and values a reality are described in our collective commitments.

We have developed these statements in collaboration with our staff, students and families. They are part of our School Success Plan.

Mission

Our mission as a school community is to foster a love of learning for a lifetime by providing meaningful experiences in a safe, nurturing and inclusive environment, so that students evolve into caring and independent global citizens. Climate for Learning - By creating an environment that values and acknowledges all types of learners, we will encourage a life long love of learning and celebrate growth and personal successes.
