COMMITMENT TO DEMOCRATIC PRINCIPLES

Kilbreda College adheres to and promotes the principles and practices of Australian democracy:

    • We believe in an accountable, democratically elected government.
  • • We respect and observe the rule of law, and believe that no person is above the law.
  • • We believe in equal rights for all before the law, regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, sexuality, gender or other attributes.
  • • We believe not only in the freedom of religion, but also the need to practice tolerance and understanding of others' beliefs.
  • • We believe in the value of freedom of speech and freedom of association, but also acknowledge that we have the responsibility not to abuse this freedom.
  • • We believe in the values of openness and tolerance, and value and respect all members of the school community regardless of background.

We strive to ensure that our students develop:

  • • An appreciation of the experiences and heritage of Australia's Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island peoples and their influence on Australian civic identity and society
  • • An appreciation of Australia as a multicultural society and a commitment to supporting intercultural understandings
  • • An understanding of the ways in which governance structures from other countries are similar to, or differ from, democracy in Australia.
