School Vision, Mission and Values
In 2014 staff, students and parents collaboratively developed a new vision for our school. This vision – Inspiring young minds, creating possibilities – along with the underlying mission statement and a draft set of values were released for parent feedback towards the end of the school year.
On the basis of this feedback, the values have been reduced from 8 to 4 and have been defined for our school context. The mission statement has also been refined. The new draft is attached below and School Council welcomes feedback from the whole school community. Please email your feedback to the Chair, Kati Tonkin: nppsschoolcouncil [at] gmail.com. Feedback should be received by Friday 20 March.
Religious Education Policy Draft
One of the functions of a School Council is to provide advice to the Principal on:
- a general policy concerning the use in school activities of prayers, songs and material based on religious, spiritual or moral values being used in a school activity as part of religious education; and
- allowing time for the special religious education of students in the school.
Following consultation with the school community in 2014, School Council has drafted the Religious Education Policy for NPPS and welcomes feedback from the school community. The draft is attached below. Please email comments to the Chair of School Council, Kati Tonkin, at the new School Council email address: nppsschoolcouncil [at] gmail.com.
All feedback must be received by Friday 20 March and will be considered by School Council at its next meeting on Monday 30 March.
