About our school

Our vision

Our school will be a friendly and supportive place of learning that works collaboratively and harmoniously with its community to provide optimal educational outcomes for each student.

It will be a school that prepares students to meet the challenges in the future as creative and critical thinkers.

Our mission

Banora Point Primary School's mission is to ensure the provision of optimum educational outcomes by continually striving to meet the changing needs of the school community efficiently and effectively.

Statement of belief

We believe that children succeed at school:

  • by being immersed in positive learning situations 
  • by being exposed to ‘positive models’ 
  • through involvement with those who hold high expectations for them 
  • by accepting responsibility for their learning through the development of the decision-making process 
  • by having time and opportunity to use and practice their developing control in functional, realistic, non-artificial ways 
  • by making approximations of the desired models which are essential if learning is to occur 
  • by receiving feedback from exchanges with more knowledgeable persons. This response must be appropriate, readily available, non-threatening, with ‘no strings attached’.
