School Values and Rules

​Value of the Week – Honesty

Honesty is being truthful and sincere. It is important because it builds trust. When people are honest, they can be relied on not to lie, cheat or steal. Being honest means that you accept yourself as you are. When you are open and trustworthy, others can believe in you.

  • Honesty is telling the truth.
  • Honesty is straightforward conduct.
  • Honesty is being sincere, truthful, trustworthy, honourable, fair, genuine and loyal with integrity

 

You practise honesty when you:

  • tell the truth despite consequences
  • explain the real reason you didn't turn in your homework
  • keep your eyes on your own paper
  • write a report in your own words instead of copying
  • admit you made the mistake
  • keep a friend's secret
  • hand in money that you found

 

School Rule – We keep our hands and feet to ourselves

You practise this by:

  • following the rules of the sporting game on the oval
  • waiting patiently for your turn on the playground equipment
  • using your words nicely to tell someone that their behaviour is annoying you
  • respecting other’s personal space by keeping your desk tidy
  • respecting other’s personal space by standing still when lining up
