Our Purpose & Values


As a school that values respect, excellence and creativity, Wheelers Hill Secondary College strives to develop students who are capable of being global citizens. Out students leave us with ready to embrace the future, with all the skills necessary to adapt to a rapidly changing world. We encourage members of our College Community to be ‘the best that they can be’ in all of their endeavours, and these words form the basis of our school motto: Be The Best That You Can Be.

To ensure this, our school practices revolve around these three key values:

Respect – We promote respectful, inclusive and positive relationships. Our students and staff act with integrity, and value diversity.

 

Excellence – We provide opportunities to demonstrate excellence in all areas of learning and teaching by adopting a focused and committed approach.

 

Creativity – We encourage creative thinking in our approach to both learning and teaching. Our students and staff are encouraged to seek innovative solutions to problems.
