We actively promote the NSW DET's "core values" (2004) along with the Commonwealth's "values for Australian schooling" (2004). 

These values are incorporated into Hopetown's 3 expectations (rules):

  • Be Safe       
  • Be Respectful      
  • Be Responsible

The Hopetown School community recognises that the following core values underpin school decision making around the development of the broader curriculum:

  • Resilience - developing a range of coping strategies and self-management qualities such as:  recognising strengths and maximising potential; personal responsibility, perseverance and self- discipline.
  • Connectedness - actively developing a sense of belonging to, participating in and caring for the school and the wider community.
  • Achievement - pursuing and promoting individual endeavour and displaying pride and satisfaction in personal achievement.
  • Creativity - valuing original ideas and recognising enterprise and innovation
  • Responsibility - accountability for individual actions towards yourself, others and the community.
  • Integrity - being consistently honest and trustworthy. 
  • Equity - accepting and promoting tolerance, acknowledging diversity and respecting differences.
