Our School

Commitment to Australian Democratic Principles

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
