Botany Downs Secondary College focuses on:
high expectations of student achievement
personal development and care for one another
forging strong partnerships with parents and others in a learning community
We have a clear sense of direction and certainty about our vision, philosophy, core values and standards. Our conceptual framework draws on a blend of international research among leading schools, wide experience, and well-informed evaluation of trends in education.
Our learning community is at the forefront of best practice in education, including our use of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) in education, recognised by our status as a Mentor School in the Worldwide Microsoft Partners in Learning programme. Our mix of strategies aims at nurturing responsible citizens, creative and critical thinkers and learners, and young people able to advance in a knowledge-era society.
At BDSC we utilise diverse learning activities, learning contexts, and technologies. The pace of technological change means that learning can truly take place in the global village of the 21st century, and BDSC has established national and international learning partnerships for both students and staff.
