School framework

Hopetown School has a primary purpose to provide opportunities for the Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) of students by:

  • Supporting students in their development of the Emotional Literacy competencies of self-awareness, self-regulation, motivation, empathy & social skills. 
  • Providing students with opportunities to experience success in academic, social,  recreational and vocational areas and to have that success acknowledged.
  • Developing in students the foundations of success and happiness, namely, confidence, persistence, organisation, getting along and resilience. (You Can Do It!)


The Hopetown School community identifies values that closely align with the NSW DoE's "core values" and the Commonwealth's "shared values".  Hopetown School believes that the following two conditions are required for these values to be taught:

  • Connectedness  - developing a sense of community and belonging.  Positive involvement in programs at Hopetown.
  • Resilience - developing self-management, self-confidence & self-respect and nurturing optimism, perseverance & well-being.


  • Be Safe
  • Be Respectful
  • Be Responsible
