Junior Secondary Philosophy
Junior Secondary at Everton Park State High School fosters the development of responsible, thoughtful and socially just young people for life in a technological and global society. Our dynamic, contemporary and futures oriented environment will challenge students to collaboratively and independently explore and create, to make decisions and to actively participate in and be accountable for their learning.
Students are supported to develop their own group identity within the broader school community, and to have a strong sense of belonging through ownership of their school and their learning. Students achieve their individual potential, incorporating the school values of Being Responsible, Being Respectful and Being Your Best.
The learning and achievement of Junior Secondary students is supported by highly skilled teachers with excellent knowledge and practice in quality teaching and a breadth of curriculum experiences appropriate for this age group.
Leadership opportunities for staff and students are delivered through strong school leadership and a focus on support for Junior Secondary students.
Student wellbeing builds a foundation of success by embedding social and personal competencies across all facets of school life; incorporating a healthy lifestyle of good nutrition and exercise. The Heads of Year are supported by Home Group teachers and members of Administration and will work with class teachers, Heads of Departments, parents and families to monitor students' progress and wellbeing.
Connecting to our Community
A strong partnership between the school and the community is built upon our core values. There are a range of opportunities for parents and community to work with the school to extend students learning.
Local Decision Making
Local school communities through the P & C Association or School Council will influence the shape of the Junior Secondary experience.
