Rokeby Primary School embraces new values

ROKEBY Primary School has welcomed a major update to its core values and logo in an effort to better reflect the school’s development and encourage excellence in its students.

The recent changes were brought to fruition following a six-month consultation period in which the school sought input from staff, students, parents and the wider community on the school’s primary values and future direction.

“The feedback we received was fantastic and brought ideas together from all over our community,” Rokeby Primary School principal Tim Nicholas said.

“Our parents group played a vital role in communicating to our community on what the values might be and how it will drive our school forward.”

Mr Nicholas said the school’s new core values would be achievement, respect, responsibility and resilience.

“These four core values will provide a framework at Rokeby Primary School over the coming yeas to build well-rounded students ready to take on the world, no matter what is faced in the future,” he said.

“Teachers and students have also developed a set of ‘I Statements’ to sit alongside the values, which will reflect our students’ voice and give them a chance to see the values in real-life situations.

“We are very enthusiastic about the future of our students’ education here at Rokeby Primary School.”
