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 school is a learning community that encourages the development of the whole child. We value personal excellence, independence, differences, mutual respect and lifelong learning.

Vision

Through a supportive network of staff, parents, students and community members, we endeavour to create a learning and working environment that supports life-long learning. In addition to academic excellence, we envision a future where students, staff and parents make a difference in their school, community and beyond. Through our long-standing outreach program, Whiteoaks' students continue to appreciate the value of caring for others in the local and international community and in creating a legacy of which we can all be proud. In keeping with creating citizens of the future, we will work to develop staff and student facility with technology.
