Our Values

Our Core Values

At SPARK Schools, we know that excellent education is as much about character development as academic achievement.  To that end, SPARK Schools emphasise the core values of Service, Persistence, Achievement, Responsibility, and Kindness in the classroom, in the Learning Lab, during sport, on the playground, and in the community. Every day, students repeat the SPARK Schools Creed, a daily promise that summarises these core values and reminds students that they are SPARK scholars at all times.  SPARK teachers and tutors discuss these core values with students throughout the school day and work with families to implement them at home.  Our core values are essential to setting our scholars on a path of learning and personal success at SPARK and beyond!

Service

SPARK Scholars are active citizens in their classrooms, communities, and country. They dedicate time and effort to serving those in need and approach challenges with a team mindset.

Responsibility

SPARK Scholars demonstrate self-control and are accountable for their actions. They pay attention, follow directions, complete assignments, and seek to understand how their actions impact others.

Persistence

SPARK Scholars never give up. They relentlessly pursue their academic and personal goals, tackling problems with an optimistic attitude and determination.

Kindness

SPARK Scholars treat themselves and others with respect and dignity. They are generous and value their relationships with peers and teachers alike.

Achievement

SPARK Scholars accomplish their academic goals, putting them on a trajectory toward university and successful careers. They are intellectually curious and have a genuine love of learning.

Unique Value

Every SPARK school has a sixth core value, which is unique to that school and acts as a theme for student and community projects throughout the school year. Visit each school page to find out our existing schools’ core values.
