Our School Philosophy

Officer Secondary College’s philosophy is centred on learning and relationships and is reflected in our motto ‘Learning Together; Learning to Lead; Together we Inspire’.

  • We believe learning is maximized when it takes place in an environment enriched with high expectations, personalisation, challenge, inclusion and support.
  • We promote and celebrate the pursuit of lifelong learning and are committed to nurturing the ‘whole’ person. We recognise the importance of equipping our students with the social and emotional skills that will enable them to compete on the world stage. Building high self-esteem, learning confidence and respect for others are central to this.
  • We believe that all students can learn, be critical thinkers and independent learners through personalized learning, personal endeavor and commitment.
  • We recognize and value the uniqueness and potential of each individual. A diverse curriculum, varied teaching styles, diverse learning environments and an extensive array of opportunities are available to all students.
  • We encourage and cultivate independent thought and promote the building of character. This enables students to contribute in their communities in a meaningful and positive way.
