Students at Oxley Vale enjoy a happy, safe and stimulating environment. They develop the values, skills and knowledge to thrive in and transform their world. Flexible school structures enable the delivery of challenging curricula. Students apply their learning in meaningful situations. We expect each student to become literate and numerate and to acquire creative problem-solving skills. Each should also become socially competent and confident and able to form strong relationships. Substantial involvement and direct teaching assistance by parents supports the learning process at Oxley Vale. Our effectiveness in achieving desired outcomes for students is much enhanced by the input of so many parents. Both teachers and parents adopt a collaborative approach towards our common goal of producing effective, caring Australian citizens.
