  • Others
  • Property
  • Environment

Responsibility

  • Selves
  • Actions
  • Learning

  • Resourcesful

Inclusiveness

  • Every Individual
  • Strive for Potential

  2. Group 2 Ideas.

    Big list at the start and eventually settled on respect being an overarching value that all the others can sit under. This can be divided into 2 parts – respect for yourself and respect for others.

    Top 3 values then are:
    Respect
    Integrity
    Community

    RESPECT
    INTEGRITY COMMUNITY
    Resiliant Empathy for others
    High expectations/ Collaboration
    achievement Connected
    Pride Supportive
    Responsible FOR actions Accountable TO Consistent others for your actions
    Organised
    Flexible

  3. Pairs words
    Respect achievement belonging
    Respect responsibility pride/ honour
    Respect responsibility accountability
    Respect pride responsibility

    Options from this point included
    SOAR
    Safe
    Organised
    Achievement / accountability
    Respect

    ROR
    Respect
    Organised
    Responsible

    General consensus was
    ROAR

    Organisation
    Achievement
    Responsibility

  4. Group 5 came up with the following values:
    Respect
    Responsibility
    Resilience
    Integrity

    CARE
    Collaborative
    Achievement
    Respect
    Engage

    R In R
    Respect
    Integrity
    Responsilbility

    The group believed this last on fitted neatly with the pupose statement.

  5. My Group had a very strong feeling towards the most important value being “connected” to Traralgon College.

    From this we discussed different values and the group felt that using alliteration definitely helped in remembering values.

    We came to the 3 R’s (probably the most popular)

    – Respect
    – Responsibility
    – Resilience

    We also dabbled in the C’s

    – Collaborate
    – Communicate
    – Challenge (embrace)
    – Care (Support)

    And Pride sat as a bit of an outlier

  6. Group 7

    Respect
    Pride
    High Expectations
    Responsibility
    Collaboration
    Active and Creative Learning (Diverse Learning)

  7. The acronym of C.A.R.E. could stand for the following;
    COLLABORATIVE – (working together, sharing – students, teachers, leading teachers, principals and support staff)
    ACHIEVEMENT – (personal, group, VET, VCAL, promotions, productions, competitions)
    in a
    RESPECTFUL – (respect, honour, integrity, for property, looks, conveyed perception, others and yourself)
    ENVIRONMENT – (school yard, buildings, excursions, community projects, external courses)
