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 
commitment to:

  • 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
