Our Values

Truth. Courage. Service.

The Queenwood values have taken different forms since the inception of the School. In developing our Strategic Direction we have reaffirmed the values Truth, Courage and Service, as declared by our founders and expressed in the words of the beloved School Hymn.


In truth we:

  • seek knowledge and a deep understanding of the world; 
  • act with honesty and integrity; 
  • grow in wisdom and self-knowledge; 
  • lead upright lives with a strong moral compass.


With courage we:

  • persevere through adversity; 
  • think and act with independence;
  • engage openly and confidently with diverse people and ideas;
  • rise to the challenge of the complex and the unfamiliar.


Through service we:

  • respect the value of humanity in all its diversity;
  • seek justice and peace with humility and compassion; 
  • stand with the vulnerable and marginalised in our local community and beyond; 
  • cultivate a generous and joyful spirit.
