Our Vision & Values

At Coburg High School our central purpose is to educate the young people of the Coburg community and to ensure that our students graduate to lead rewarding, responsible, prosperous, healthy and happy lives and to enable them to contribute to the world. Our aim is to improve the learning, achievement, engagement and wellbeing outcomes for all of our students:

  • Learning: we develop the skills of lifelong learning in our students and teach them the knowledge, skills and values they need to thrive in a complex and changing world
  • Achievement: we develop the unique talents of each of our students and enable them to make significant growth and progress in learning
  • Engagement: we foster authentic student agency in their learning, decision-making and future pathways
  • Wellbeing: we enable students to lead healthy lives, to develop inner strength, and to build and maintain positive relationships with others
