Our school Mantra:
‘TOGETHER WE MAKE A DIFFERENCE’
Our School Values:
Respect Responsibility Resilience
We underpin our student engagement strategies with programs strategies outlined in our Student Well Being Statement. The school works closely with our neighbouring schools and the Shire of Yarra Ranges in running Restorative Practices Program in order to create a common language throughout the broader local community. The school also bases its values education on our whole school mantra.
Since 2010 the school has introduced a student pledge to be recited at each school assembly. It was written by the school’s School Captains in 2009.
Our School Pledge:
As a student of Ferny Creek Primary School
I am honest and considerate, including others.
I am resilient and responsible for my own actions,
I will respect my environment,
Take pride in my work,
And have fun while I learn.
Beginning in the 2017 year the school has also adopted an ‘Acknowledgement to Country’. This was developed by Student Leaders through 2016. It is recited at all assemblies and other important school gatherings.
We acknowledge the traditional custodians of this land, the Wurundjeri People
And pay our respects to the eldersBoth past, present and future
For they hold the memories, the traditions, the culture
And hopes of Aboriginal Australia.
We must always remember that under our concrete and asphalt
This land is, was and always will be, traditional Aboriginal land.
