Mission and values


Our aspirational long term intent:

​The purpose of Western Cape College is to deliver consistent high quality schooling that develops the talents and capacities of all our students – socially, emotionally and academically. We will equip our culturally diverse student body to meet the challenges of a rapidly changing world. Staff, parents and community will work together, guided by the principal, to provide students with opportunities to achieve their full potential in learning. Students will develop resilience, self-confidence, respect for others, and the achievement of personal excellence. It is our vision that all of our students have every opportunity to develop as active and informed citizens; as lifelong learners who positively contribute to Australian society. 


Our ‘day to day’ focus that guides our operations: 

“To deliver consistent high quality schooling for all of our students”


We strongly believe that:

  • A positive workplace allows for every child to access quality schooling in a safe, inclusive, disciplined and supportive learning environment.

  • Every WCC student is capable of learning and succeeding – and this is the basis of their sense of belonging at our College.

  • Quality teacher instruction and feedback are the greatest influence on student academic achievement.

  • Education is a tool for change, and any change process needs to be inclusive of creativity and innovation, as well as a sense of wellbeing for all.

  • Parents/caregivers are a child’s most influential teacher, and the critical role of any school is to support them in educating their children.

  • Sophisticated data sets should be used to inform the College improvement agenda.
