Values and vision
Bannockburn High School views it as important to prepare its students well for later life. As the result of this, the school has firm guidelines when it comes to dress code and attendance. The school also aims to provide ways, other than through the school curriculum, to enrich students’ educational experiences.
“Young people are well motivated, confident and focused on their learning. They enjoy working together in small groups and the school is helping them to become more confident. In almost all classes, they use information and communications technology (ICT) well to develop research skills… Teachers regularly share with young people what they expect them to learn. As a result, young people are beginning to develop a clearer understanding of the purpose of their learning.”
