At Diamond Creek Primary School we pride ourselves on a whole school focus on OUR four values, , RESPECT, CO-OPERATION, PERSISTENCE and (striving for)EXCELLENCE. With our behaviour, attitudes interactions and learning impelled by these values, our students receive not only an academic education but also are supported to develop their emotional and social intelligence throughout their learning journey.
We have written our own emotional literacy program, “Diamond Kids” which develops and enhances each of our values and other associated habits of ‘mind, body and soul’ over time. Each week a on an aspect of our “Diamond Kids” program is introduced at our assembly by our principal, Helen Micallef. Teachers are then constantly referring back to the values within their classrooms to create a supportive and welcoming classroom learning community.
