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.


It is the mission of Shelter Bay Public School to empower students by caring, sharing, and challenging them to attain their personal best. It is our mission to help every student realize his or her full potential and become a responsible member of society, a life-long learner and critical thinker who respects himself or herself, others and the environment.


The staff at Shelter Bay is a team working collaboratively to enable every individual within the school to strive, soar and shine by helping them to acquire the knowledge, skills and self-worth necessary to contribute positively as life-long learners to a changing society.
