Mission and values

The school’s Guiding Statement was published in December 2015 and includes the school’s positioning statement, motto, background, mission statement, values, and learner attributes. The Guiding Statement was developed in consultation with staff, parents and students. 
The Guiding Statement now includes the Cairns High Learner Attributes (adapted from the IB Learner Profile) which form the foundation of global citizenship. 

The Guiding Statement states that Our students, in both a local and global context aspire to be:

·        Inquirers

·        Knowledgeable

·        Thinkers

·        Effective communicators

·        Principled

·        Open-minded and flexible

·        Caring and cooperative

·        Confident to embrace new challenges

·        Balanced and resilient

·        Reflective​ 

The school has developed Guiding Statement Monitoring Procedures which will monitor support across the school community both formally and also through the collection of feedback. 

Following formal review processes, the Guiding statement is modified tto better align to the school's strategic direction.
