Queechy High School is an inclusive learning community committed to meeting the educational needs of its large and diverse student population. In everything we do, in the ways we work, relate and respond to each other, we model our appreciation of and celebrate the rich diversity that underlies our school. Through our actions, we demonstrate care and respect and value all, thus enabling students to be nurtured in every respect of their learning. Together we celebrate the achievements of all.
As a community, we set and enact high standards. We strive to instil in our students a strong belief in their own capacity to make positive choices, while at the same time building resilience and fostering a commitment to becoming interdependent learners. We support students growing towards understanding and upholding the routines and expectations of our school and society, thus enabling them to become responsible citizens who can meet the demands of life and work in the 21st century.
Queechy High School is a safe environment where every individual is expected to contribute to creating a culture of mutual respect. Expectations regarding behaviour of all are clear, consistent and supported by policies and processes that are appropriate, equitable and enactable.
Our teaching is best practice. We are enthusiastic, committed and work from a strong knowledge base, supported by on-going professional learning that enables us to strive for and achieve excellence in teaching and learning. Individual passions and expertise, along with the vital aspect of being responsive to the needs, interests and aspirations of the learner, are key components in determining teaching roles and teams.
The learning delivered builds connectedness within and beyond our school community. Our curriculum provides coherence, structured frameworks for teachers and learners and allows for ever-deepening thinking and understanding.
Our structures reflect and represent the needs of all, being flexible and promoting excellent teaching and learning opportunities for individuals and groups, students and adults.
A commitment to promoting honest, productive and positive communication among all those involved with our school community is vital. This, along with a process of on-going review and development in which all stakeholders play an active role, will ensure that all students receive the best education possible.
