Our Values and Motto
Our School Motto is Care, Learn and Share. Our school values are respect, care, trust, fostering growth and development.
Underpinning our school motto and values is the development and common understanding of the three rights.
■ The right to learn
■ The right to feel safe
■ The right to be respected
As a community we understand with each right there is an equal responsibility. These three responsibilities are held up alongside our rights.
■ We are responsible for ensuring we try our best and have a positive impact on the learning of others.
■ We are responsible for ensuring others feel safe physically and emotionally.
■ We have the responsibility to treat others fairly and with respect.
We believe every child can learn and they have the right to reach their full potential.
Boroondara Park is a hidden gem in Balwyn North with an active and supportive community. We view a child’s education as a joint responsibility between school, parents, and child. To this end we encourage parental involvement in many areas including classroom helpers, celebrations, open days, assemblies, end of term learning Expos, sporting activities, camps and excursions.
Learning to learn is a particular focus with the intent of fostering a lifelong love of exploring and problem solving, asking questions and seeking knowledge. We work to empower our students by providing a challenging and enriching primary school experience. We encourage students to take responsibility for goal setting, to be self-motivated and appreciate the intrinsic value of learning. By guiding them to use their skills and knowledge to make responsible contributions to the global environment and embrace kindness, we work to ensure learning goes beyond the boundaries of the classroom.
Our school has before and after school care, a school canteen and many extra curricula activities and programs for students to participate in, including instrumental music, chess and sporting activities. Boroondara Park Primary School is able to take International Students for study in Victoria.
