What Makes WaSPS Unique?

What Makes WaSPS Unique?

School Vision

Wantirna South Primary School’s motto ‘a place to dream, a place to discover, a place to learn for life’ is underpinned by our vision and philosophy of teaching and learning. The vision drives our teaching practice and everyday behaviours to encourage lifelong learning and cultivate inquisitive community members who are encouraged to be active and informed citizens.

We nurture a passion for learning by providing a differentiated curriculum that fosters independence and supports the students to take ownership of their learning, to reach their full potential academically, physically, socially and emotionally.

We are a connected school community that actively develops all members who are confident to use their voice to make meaningful and positive contributions to society. Our RICHeR values and Learner Qualities establish a strong foundation for learners to be empowered and take ownership of their personal growth.  Our staff model these practices, and encourage students to be resilient and curious.

The warm, inviting tone set across the school is attributed to the RICHeR values embedded throughout the community:

Respect

Acknowledging the rights and opinions of others, and valuing others for who they are.

Inclusion

Being accepting of others and providing a sense of belonging.

Care

Show consideration for the well-being of yourself, others and the world in which we live.

Honesty

Being truthful.

Responsibility

Being reliable, and accountable for your attitudes and behaviours.
