At WPGA, our behaviours are guided by our core values, one being character driven
, in that we model empathy and integrity as the basis for our actions. In nurturing students' potential in all areas, we nurture their social and emotional growth, with the goal of inspiring them to be compassionate citizens who care deeply about their peers, their communities and their own wellbeing.
Our junior school counsellors oversee our character education program, CARE (Citizenship, Attitude, Respect, Esteem), which begins in junior kindergarten and uses virtues-based themes for classroom lessons and discussions. CARE provides the script for healthy relationships and a growth mindset, which we endeavour to instill in children from a young age.
In the senior school, empathy, inclusiveness and social justice are embedded into our service and leadership programs, which include dozens of local community initiatives each year and international outreach trips at Spring Break.
