Mission

Thiele Primary School will work to ensure that our students become independent lifelong learners who are productive and well informed community members and citizens.

Values

Respect

Showing that we can look after ourselves, our environment and others.  This includes taking care of our belongings and the equipment we use in the environment where we work, play and live. It also means that we care about our learning, believing that we can do our best.

Sustainability

Appreciating and respecting the diversity of views and values that influence sustainable. The ability to meet the needs of the present without compromising the future generations to meet their needs.

Achievement

With effort you can accomplish success and the realisation that learning is lifelong and can be accomplished in many forms. Achievement is accumulative over a period of time. It also means that we care about our learning, believing that we can do our best.

Integrity

Having strong, consistent moral principles that you refuse to change. It is having an honesty and truthfulness in your actions even when no one is watching. It is not one single action but is ongoing in everything you do. It means doing the right thing even though it may be hard, sharing your feelings and always being responsible for your actions.
