Mission & Values
MISSION & VALUES
“We are all dedicated teachers who are emotionally invested in our work. To us this isn’t just a job, it’s a family.”
At Eastside we are guided by the following:
We exist to provide a caring, stimulating and safe environment, where students are challenged through high quality educational programs and practices to strive towards personal, social and academic excellence. Staff, parents, students, the church and the wider community actively collaborate to provide an environment where all can strive to reach their full potential under God.
“to lovingly support a thriving, caring community of lifelong learners,
each one a special child of God.”
At the College we focus on developing the whole child, and educating their hearts, minds and hands. This is reflected in the overarching principles and values of the College that permeate all that we do.
At the College, the Lutheran Education Australia Life Long Qualities serve as overarching dispositions, skills and attitudes through which teachers of the College seek to develop students who are (and serve their communities) by being:
- Self-directed, insightful investigators and learners
- Discerning, resourceful problem solvers and implementers
- Adept, creative producers and contributors
- Open, responsive communicators and facilitators
- Principled, resilient leaders and collaborators
- Caring, steadfast supporters and advocates
The teaching and learning programs of the College promote the characteristics of God through the explicit teaching of core values of: love, justice, compassion, forgiveness, service, humility, courage, hope, quality and appreciation.
