Koonung Secondary College will build an innovative learning environment in which students develop a strong sense of citizenship and self awareness, and strive to achieve their academic potential. As a 21st Century learning community we recognise the importance of developing in our students and teachers the capacity to think creatively and critically, to be adaptable, to work cooperatively and to develop powerful communication skills. All members of the Koonung community will be encouraged to be active and contributing participants in the learning journey.
In our learning community we value:
Learners who are critical, creative and deep thinkers, who strive to achieve their best academically and who develop the ability to become autonomous lifelong learners.
A community which is based on active, responsible and inclusive citizenship, tolerance and respect for the rights of others and the physical environment.
Opportunities for personal growth which allow the individual to develop self-awareness, confidence, resilience, self-worth, and the acceptance of responsibility and leadership.
