Mission and values

Our Boonah State High School motto is:

 'CONARE EST FLORERE - To strive is to grow

'To strive' requires students to be committed to a series of self-determined personal short and long term goals and to make the most of diverse opportunities presented during the term of their schooling at Boonah State High School. 'Growth' in the academic, social, vocational and personal development of our students is the outcome we envisage.

Our Vision Statement is 'LEARNING LIFE TOGETHER'

Our aim is to provide all our students with a wide range of positive, safe and worthwhile opportunities to assist them to become independent, responsible, well-adjusted and resourceful young men and women well prepared for the worlds of work and further education. Our school community of students, staff, parents and citizens each have a role to play in providing an environment that promotes the academic, social, vocational and personal development of all students.

The results of students at Boonah State High over the past 5 years have demonstrated the school to be a student centre learning organisation, with a commitment to the values of Education Queensland. High retention rates, high levels of achievement and high levels of satisfaction from students, parents and staff indicate Boonah is on target to move into the future with a continued commitment to support students to achieve their goals.

The values that drive the planning processes and decision-making for our school include:

  • Value effort

  • Act responsibly

  • Ethically respect ourselves, others and the community

On a day to day basis these translate to four guiding statements for staff and students:

  • Be prepared

  • Be on task

  • Be polite

  • Be responsible
