Vision and Values
Collingwood College is committed to developing responsible, independent and happy young people who have a strong moral code and contribute to society both economically and socially. Students should have the self-belief to take a ‘no-limits’ approach to their learning and be the best that they can be. In all aspects of College life they can be proud of who they are, develop a growth mindset and become well-equipped to meet the challenges of the future.
Our values guide our decisions and the way we behave:
We have high standards for ourselves, are open, honest and do what is right, not just what is easy.
We are forward-thinking and committed to continuous improvement, innovation and acting on curiosity.
We work hard to overcome challenges, achieve, and exceed expectations.
We celebrate successes and support everyone to reach their goals. Academic results are just part of the story – we strive for excellence in everything we do.
We believe that diversity of backgrounds, cultures and ideas strengthens our community – one in which everyone is treated with kindness, empathy and fairness.
