In 2019 our school community came together to review the direction and our ways of working together. We ensured that we had a shared purpose for our school, which captured the goals and dreams of our parents, reflected the commitment and expertise of our staff and aligned with contemporary research about learning.
Our vison of “creating a dynamic community where every student is engaged” reinforces our aspiration to develop a strong supportive and inclusive community where every student is achieving their potential.
Our school motto “Together We Can” reflects the belief that we have high expectations of our students and that learning should be social and collaborative.
In consultation with the whole school community; Belong, Learn and Achieve were identified to reflect their expectations of Geebung Special School to provide the best learning environment for their children.
