Ellesmere College Values

Ellesmere College Values

These values are the principles we use to inform our daily actions at Ellesmere College.

  • We value a culture where tolerance, courtesy, respect, trust and compassion foster good relationships, and where people are encouraged to take responsibility for their actions.
  • We value individuality and diversity amongst individuals. In particular we seek to ensure that everyone avoids discrimination on the basis of physical appearance, belief, gender, ethnicity, disability or sexuality.
  • We value the emotional and physical well being of everyone in our community.
  • We value all the complementary strands of a high quality and individualised education: social, moral, academic, creative, physical, emotional and spiritual.
