Our Vision and Values

Vision & Values

“South Oakleigh College hasn’t only prepared me for university, but for life.”

Scott Murray, former student, currently studying Economics/Commerce @ Monash University.

At South Oakleigh College we  will foster and develop a love of learning, where all students are active participants in a learning culture and are given sufficient support in order to promote academic excellence and personal development through a range of challenging experiences.

“Knowledge Conquers All

We recognise that our students have individual talents and we aim to provide a broad range of opportunities so that they can achieve their potential and become confident, engaged learners who contribute productively as they become global citizens of the 21st century. By celebrating the  diversity of cultures at South Oakleigh College we encourage all our students to develop a strong sense of social responsibility, empathy and compassion for others.  Why South Oakleigh College?

Our core purpose is underpinned by the following shared values:

High Expectations: challenging ourselves and the status quo
Respect: for ourselves, each other and our environment
Responsibility: for our learning, our own actions and our community
Resilience: to confront challenges with optimism and perseverance
Teamwork: working co-operatively with others to achieve success
