Values

At Box Hill North Primary School we strongly promote the values of ambition, courage, compassion and creativity.  Students are encouraged to take responsibility for their own learning and behaviour in order to reach their full learning potential.

Our school values are exhibited by our students in the classrooms and the playground through:

Ambition

“reach for the stars”

We are focussed and organised

Compassion

“empathy for others”

We embrace differences, respect and care for one another

Courage

“give it a go”

We have inner strength, are brave and bounce back

Creativity

“wonder”

We are inspired, curious, collaborative and individual

These values are taught in the context of our Wellbeing Program and are embedded across the school. Learning focuses on the foundations for academic success and social skill development using confidence, getting along, persistence, organisation and emotional resilience. Students are acknowledged for efforts in these areas as well as for academic and sporting achievements and participation.

It is refreshing that fathers are just as welcome as mothers in school life. From Kindergarten where I have the opportunity to participate in my youngest boy’s class to school camp that I was fortunate to attend, I have always been encouraged and warmly welcomed. I have also thoroughly enjoyed participating in class room help for all my boys.

The move into the grade 5/6 area which is separate from the rest of the school gives the kids a real sense of being the ‘big kids’ and is a start to their transition to secondary school and being more responsible.

The school garden is such a fantastic feature of our school. Garden Club students have the opportunity to learn about all aspects of gardening from the role of healthy soil to how to use silverbeet to make delicious pizzas. Science, nutrition and sustainability are explored in a truly hands on environment.

We run a progressive and innovative technology program to produce true 21st Century Citizens. Students in Prep enjoy using iPads and students in the senior school will be instructed with Ultrabooks as a part of our 1-to-1 program.
