SCHOOL VALUES

The 5 R's 

Bundoora Secondary College aims to develop graduates who are well-rounded individuals with multiple options and strong values to guide their conduct in the school and broader community. The school values – the 5 Rs – underpin all of our philosophy and are an integral part of our student engagement guidelines. The 5 Rs – Responsibility, Respect, Resilience, Relationships, Rigour – are written into the assessment and reporting frameworks to highlight and underline their importance to the College vision and philosophy
