OUR Distinctives – WHO are we?
At Freshwater Bay, we are a community defined by:
1. our people
Our staff, parents and students are connected by a strong sense of ownership and belonging to Freshwater Bay. Together we are committed to developing a school that inspires and supports its community.
2. THEIR CHARACTER & COMPETENCE
We believe that education should be about developing not just the competencies but also the character of each individual student. Our aim is to provide a stimulating, supportive environment in which all children, and staff members, are encouraged to reach their full potential as people, as learners and as a community.
3. OUR CAPACITY TO DREAM
In 2011, Freshwater Bay joined an international network of schools known as Our Education Network. With their involvement, the people of Freshwater Bay have taken the time to share their stories, listen to each other and reflect on what it means to be a Freshwater Bay student, staff member and parent. Significantly, we have imagined a future in which Freshwater Bay builds the best possible foundations for life long learning.
Learning and laughter go hand in hand. At Freshwater Bay we have a fantastic spirit of fun, play, laughter and vibrancy. We believe that education should be enjoyable and we provide opportunities for everyone to laugh, imagine, explore and learn.
5. OUR COMMITMENT TO DO BETTER
One of the most important questions we ask at Freshwater Bay is “How can we do better?” We are committed to the ongoing improvement of student and staff learning. As a dynamic, collaborative community we continue to search for ways to optimize opportunities for our children – and to do better.
