Vision and Philosophy

To provide a community of care and from this, a dynamic learning environment, which enables all students to develop social and work place skills, and which challenges staff and students to meet their full potential with the support of all members of the College Community.

Lara Secondary College values were established in 2010, in consultation with our student body, our parents and our staff. Our values of Excellence, Teamwork, Commitment and Respect are clearly defined. A set of behaviours has been determined by the student body reflecting each of the values.


Acknowledging the value of learning and embracing every learning opportunity


Cooperating with others to achieve the best possible outcome for all


Agreeing to accept challenges and to show persistence


Behaving in a way which shows consideration of all members of the community
