The Edney Way
The Edney Way – Respect and Excellence
The Edney Way is the guiding principle of our school culture and tone. Edney is a safe, happy and positive school, where all members of our community, staff, students and parents feel valued, listened to and supported to be their best.
Respect (v) – we show respect by speaking and acting with courtesy. We treat others with dignity and honour the rules of our family, school and nation. Respect yourself, and others will respect you.
Excellence (n) – excellence is doing your best, giving careful attention to every task and every relationship. Excellence is effort guided by a noble purpose. When you practice excellence, you bring your gifts to fruition. Excellence is the key to success.
All members of our school community demonstrate Respect and Excellence in the following ways:
Students come to school to learn and to have fun. Students are supported to show respect to themselves, each other, the staff, school community and the environment. Students strive for excellence in all activities, academic, artistic, sporting and social.
The staff come to school to teach and to have fun. Staff are supported to focus on teaching in classrooms, developing nurturing and inclusive classroom environments and dynamic and responsive teaching programs.
PARENTS / COMMUNITY
Parents and the community support our students and staff through ensuring children are equipped with the necessary equipment, care and partnership with our school to maximise outcomes for students.
