Our Vision & Values


Vision

All students of Abbotsford Primary School will be kind local citizens and caring global thinkers.

 

Mission

Abbotsford Primary School’s mission is to offer a world-class, holistic, Chinese/English bilingual education that is informed by global best practice and tailor-made for Abbotsford’s local context.

 

Objectives

As a bilingual school with a multicultural makeup, Abbotsford Primary School endeavours to:

  • Equip students with the capabilities to navigate seamlessly across linguistic and socio-cultural borders (“Learning about diversity”)
  • Empower students to be leaders of their own learning (“Diversity in learning”)
  • Inspire students to build and maintain global connections (“Globally informed”)
  • Instil a culture of empathy and mutual respect for all students to embrace their unique identity (“Locally rooted”)

These objectives together form the two mottos that underpin the work we do:

  • “Diversity in learning; Learning about diversity” “多元学习 ‧ 学习多元”
  • “Globally informed; locally rooted” “世界接轨 ‧ 在地深根”

 

Values


 

Why are these values important for achieving our vision and mission?

  • Curiosity is the key driver of global citizenship, as it opens our mind and heart to the endless possibilities of this world.
  • Seeing learning as an enjoyable challenge motivates us to step out of our own comfort zone and tackle difficult skills (like Chinese!)
  • A strong sense of connectedness helps us to feel we belong and that we are all responsible for our school community.
  • Caring for all members of the school community ensures that Abbotsford Primary School remains a vibrant, safe and inclusive environment for learning.

Curiosity means:

  • Regarding differences as opportunities to understand new perspectives
  • Being open-minded and not making assumptions about how the world ‘should’ work

Challenge means:

  • Embracing every opportunity to grow, even when it seems difficult
  • Comparing yourself to who you were yesterday, not to who someone else is today

Connectedness means:

  • Being inclusive of others in the school community, valuing each other’s backgrounds, perspectives and experiences
  • Showing responsibility for the school community and contributing in your own way

Care means:

  • Treating others the way you want to be treated
  • Going the extra mile to provide equitable access and giving a helping hand to those in need
