We expect our students, staff, and community to embed our Mission objectives within everything they do, as they strive to achieve the ESF Vision for every student to be the best that they can be.

Teaching approach of the school

Our purpose at South Island School is to recognise the ways in which we, as individuals, can make a difference to the world around us. Our learning philosophy and environment promote freedom of thought, expression, and action. We educate all students socially, emotionally, and academically to help them make informed decisions and take action responsibly.

We believe that individual success will be demonstrated when our students are happy, adaptable, and curious thinkers who thrive in an inclusive, diverse, and compassionate community. Our aim is to offer the opportunities and guidance for them to become honest, responsible and courageous global citizens. We want all of our actions as a community to promote learning, diversity, equity and inclusion, and the holistic concept of sustainable futures.
