The Toogoolawa School is interdenominational and spiritually inclined.
It not only seeks to provide a basic education but also to give students a strong and practical philosophy for living: that service, truthfulness and consideration for others lead to a happy, fulfilled and effective life.
Love – Use caring and respectful words; develop compassion, kindness, generosity and greatness of spirit; care for the environment, each other and ourselves.
Truth – Speak honestly and confidently; develop the power of reason, intuition and a sense of inquiry.
Peace – Develop respect, calmness, patience, forgiveness and self-control; value others; move without hurry.
Right Conduct – Develop respect for society’s laws, other people and other cultures; accept responsibility; behave towards others as you would like others to behave towards you.
Non-violence – Refrain from hurtful words or actions; practise forbearance and tolerance towards others.
Toogoolawa encourages students to strive
towards living the five Human Values.
