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 ready to embrace the future, with all the skills necessary to adapt to a rapidly changing world. We encourage students of our College 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 creative and innovative solutions to problems.
