Columba works hard to establish, evaluate and maintain a high standard of School Wide Expectations for all it's staff and students. Through our whole school approach to positive behaviour support (WSAPBS), we aim to engage our school students in their learning, suporting them to see themselves as successful learners who achieve their personal best.
At Columba we know that when all members of the school community work collaboratively and each child has the opportunity to fully participate and engage in the process of learning, success will follow.
Following our school Mission and Vision Statement, we will instill in all our students a mindset that they can acheive together through 5 core values being
