In Tasmania extensive community consultation has led to common values, purposes and goals being specifically outlined in the Tasmanian curriculum. How schools enact these is determined by discussion between the school and its community. 

The shared values are:

  • connectedness - developing a sense of community through friendship, care, compassion, cooperation, acceptance, belonging and sharing
  • resilience - developing self-confidence and self-respect, optimism, perseverance and wellbeing
  • achievement - attaining success, pursuing excellence and being proud of personal achievement
  • creativity - valuing original ideas and demonstrating enterprise and innovation.
  • integrity - acting honestly, ethically, and consistently
  • responsibility - accepting individual and collective responsibility and contributing to
  • sustainable community development
  • equity - developing tolerance, respecting difference and encouraging distinctiveness.
