Values, Vision and Mission


Creekside College will instill the values and develop the skills and knowledge students need to live effective and purposeful lives. 


Empowering every student to succeed now and into the future. 

At Creekside College we have four core values;


We use these values to help us choose between right and wrong, and guide us in how we should treat ourselves, others and the world around us.

Common values help us:

  • make important decisions
  • bring out the best in ourselves and others
  • maintain positive relationships with people and the world around us

Each term we focus on a different value and students present what each one means to them at assemblies.

Our values, mission statement and slogan are clearly displayed in every classroom throughout the college.

When we explored and selected our core values, we collaborated to create our Creekside College Values Mural. To do this, every student and member of staff wrote a value that was important to them on a stone. These were collated in the form of our college logo which is proudly on display in our reception area. This acts as a constant reminder of our values to all that enter the college.


At Creekside College, we expect students to follow the college and community rules just as they would at home. All students are expected to take care of their own belongings and that of others, and come to class prepared to learn with relevant materials. They are encouraged to take responsibility of their own learning and give it their best at all times.


Honesty is about being truthful with ourselves and others. This includes telling the truth if we have made a poor choice and being honest about our feelings. Honesty at Creekside College is important because it allows open communication and higher levels of respect from one person to the next.


It is imperative that all members of the Creekside community have and show respect towards one another. It engenders peace and allows us all to feel safe and therefor learn more freely. Ways we can show respect include things like using manners, following instructions and being considerate of peoples’ differences.


Acceptance is about appreciating the differences of everyone around us and celebrating people for who they are. We all have different stories and should celebrate diversity. We need to accept others in class and at playtime and always keep an open mind. When confronted with unfamiliar situations, acceptance and tolerance will allow harmonious interactions.
