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, 8 and 9. 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, 21st Century and communication skills for lifelong learning
- every lesson, every experience is an opportunity to learn and develop both character and mind
As Deputy Principal of the Junior Secondary School, my team and I are determined to provide valuable opportunities and programs so that all students can 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 Junior Schooling HOD and our two Year Level Coordinators, I welcome you to our wonderful school.
