Statement of Values
Australian society is defined, among other aspects, by a belief in elected Government; by a
commitment to the rule of law, to equal rights for all before the law; and by a belief in
freedom of religion, freedom of speech and freedom of association. Our society is also
tolerant of a range of religious, political, social and cultural beliefs and values in the
context of the fundamental principle of our democracy.
The ‘Education and Reform Act 2006’ requires all education providers to operate in a manner
consistent with this set of Australian democratic principles.
In accordance with the Act we will deliver our programs and teaching in a manner that
supports and promotes the principles and practice of Australian democracy. This includes a
- Elected government
- The rule of law
- Equal rights for all before the law
- Freedom of religion
- Freedom of speech and association
- The values of openness and tolerance
