St Augustine’s Primary School adheres to and promotes the principles and practices of Australian democracy:
Australian society is defined, among other aspects, by a belief in elected Government; by a commitment to the rule of law, to equal rights for all before the law; and by a belief in freedom of religion, freedom of speech and freedom of association. Our society is also tolerant of a range of religious, political, social and cultural beliefs and values in the context of the fundamental principle of our democracy.
In accordance with the Reform Act 2006, as a school we deliver our programs and teaching in a manner that supports and promotes the principles and practice of Australian democracy.
This includes a commitment to:
▪ Elected government
▪ The rule of law
▪ Equal rights for all before the law
▪ Freedom of religion
▪ Freedom of speech and association
▪ The values of openness and tolerance
