A port is about new endeavours, new destinations and new horizons. A place of enduring character, connection and exchange.
In the spirit of this place, our mission is to support our students to embrace the concepts of exploration, innovation and enterprise.
We encourage our students to view failure as a pathway to growth, knowing that outstanding learning means being brave enough to try, fail and try again.
Our goal is to develop the whole person, to know what it means to be caring, compassionate and self-aware.
To best equip every student for their journey through life.
SPEAK TO WHO WE ARE, WHAT WE STAND FOR AND HOW WE CARE FOR OURSELVES AND OTHERS.
RESPECT FOR ONESELF AND OTHERS
We treat others as we would wish to be treated and are respectful, honest and positive in our approach. We act with integrity at all times.
MEANINGFUL CONNECTIONS FOR LEARNING
Genuine connection makes learning meaningful. We believe that supportive and trusting relationships are at the heart of successful learning and growth.
FEARLESS EXPLORATION AND CURIOSITY
We believe in our potential to impact change. We know success comes from purposeful effort, trial and error, and the willingness to be open to new learning.
SUPPORTING EACH OTHER TO EXCEL
We have high expectations of ourselves and others. We strive for excellence in all we do, actively engaging in experimentation as a pathway to discovery.
Our Core program is aligned to what matters most to us – the development of great people, able to build strong, positive relationships with others to improve learning. The program incorporates the teaching of respectful relationship-building, communication, collaboration and self awareness.
Core helps students understand themselves in order to better work with and understand others. Family conferences form part of the Core program and the curriculum is complemented by our Everyday Leaders program.
Core teachers are responsible for the academic and personal wellbeing of the students in their class, and are the first port of call for all students and families.
