At Yeronga State High School our school culture and curriculum is focused upon the holistic development of each student to enable them to create and access a world of opportunities.
This is embodied in our Vision above and our Latin motto Scientia ac Humanitate (Knowledge and Humanity) which we interpret as:
'creating knowledge, benefiting all'
Our Junior Secondary School is supported by a Quality team of expert staff dedicated to working with students throughout Years 7 and 8. We believe in:
the right of every individual to learn and grow
excellence in teaching and learning at the forefront of all that we do
a strong emphasis on building Literacy, Numeracy and 21st Century skills for lifelong learning
every lesson, every experience is an opportunity to learn and develop, both inside and outside the classroom.
As Deputy Principal of the Junior Secondary School, my team and I see it as our responsibility to provide numerous interactions, opportunities and programs for all students to achieve success as outlined in our Vision and motto. The links that follow are examples of these opportunities framed around our guiding values of:
Quality, Harmony and Sustainability
Quality – excellence in all that we do
Harmony – unity through tolerance and understanding
Sustainability – enduring and maintaining balance
On behalf of my team, the Dean of Students and Year Level Coordinator, I welcome you to our amazing school.
