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.


At Cawthra Park, our mission is to foster a love of learning in our students through academics, arts, athletics and citizenship by providing a positive environment characterized by individuality, integrity, and continuous growth that nurtures compassion and community.


We are a community of interdependent learners preparing for a dynamic future in life and work.
