Consistent with the Melbourne Declaration on Educational Goals for Young Australians (2008) our mission is to provide a broad and challenging education in order to develop students' 21st Century Skills, abilities and knowledge needed as a foundation for further education, training, work and community participation. This specifically involves development of Character, Foundations and Competencies.
Bundoora Secondary College strongly believes in the importance of laying a foundation that cultivates lifelong, self-directed learning that starts at an early age. While much of the discourse on lifelong learning focuses on the later stages of life, it is actually the knowledge, skills, values and attitudes acquired during the early life-stages that provide the foundation for the lifelong learning habit. Schools that truly embrace this philosophy, like Bundoora Secondary College, are pivotal organisations for laying such foundations.
Bundoora Secondary College curriculum, learning experiences and overall environment is centred around fostering the skills and mindset of self-directed lifelong learning, with 21st century competencies strategically interwoven through the learning experiences.
Effective dispositions for learning are a key to success, along with the development of ‘21st century’ skills, attributes and characteristics. It is these dispositions and skills that we value most highly and they are therefore given a central place in the classroom and all structures and processes at Bundoora Secondary College.
