School Philosophy and Values

Avondale Primary School’s philosophy is based on the premise that every student can attain high levels of academic achievement and be a responsible community member.

We aspire for students to:

  • Have high levels of enthusiasm for learning
  • Develop a broad and strong base of knowledge and skills
  • Think and act with competence, objectivity and creativity
  • Through their experience of living in a learning community, show respect and sensitivity to others
  • Show a capacity to lead, to share and to co-operate with others
  • Accept responsibility and discipline
  • Find reward in participating and doing their best.


Avondale Primary School is committed to providing a safe, supportive and inclusive environment for all students, staff and members of our community. Our school recognises the importance of the partnership between our school and parents and carers to support student learning, engagement and wellbeing. We share a commitment to, and a responsibility for, creating an inclusive and safe school environment for our students.

The programs and teaching at Avondale Primary School support and promote the principles and practice of Australian democracy, including a commitment to:

  • elected government
  • the rule of law
  • equal rights for all before the law
  • freedom of religion
  • freedom of speech and association
  • the values of openness and tolerance.



Our vision is to maintain a caring, supportive environment that promotes achievement, confidence and pride.




We believe that:

  • Every child can and wants to learn
  • Every child will develop skills, confidence, persistence, organisation and getting along with others while at Avondale Primary
  • Every child should experience success, provided through a respectful and attentive manner.



The following are shared values we hold to in the Avondale School Community.
