Our values

School values
As part of a consultation process with the school community, the school's values were revised in 2014. Students are explicitly taught these values as part of our 'Quality beginnings' program - as well as refer to them throughout the year. Westgarth's values are:

  • Integrity
  • Excellence
  • Working together
  • Responsibility
  • Respect.


School motto: Be safe, Be fair, Be friendly

All students are taught the school motto, 'Be safe, Be fair, Be friendly', understand what it means and how to behave in a safe, fair and friendly manner. This motto forms the basis for discussing aspects of friendship, fair rules, keeping ourselves safe and safe play. We encourage students to 'Be their best' at all times so that high, yet realistic, expectations are encouraged from an early age.
