VALUES EDUCATION FORUM
On 2012, Rochedale State School held another Values
Education Parent Forum. The forum was held to provide an opportunity for
members of our Rochedale School community to meet together with a shared
purpose to explore values and values education. At the forum parents were given
information about values education, the place of values education within the
school and participants were given the opportunity to voice their ideas and
opinions about promoting values education at Rochedale State School. The
results of the school values survey was also presented to the forum.
Findings from the survey revealed the following:
Thank you very much to all the
parents who completed our Values Education survey. It was pleasing to see
the response from our school community. Our school survey gathered data to
determine what parents thought about values education, what values should be
fostered in our school and the role of the school in fostering values
The findings of our Values Education
survey reinforce the strong support from parents for the school’s role in
Values Education. As a
result of the survey our school has identified the following values to be
promoted, fostered and transmitted to our students. The values are :
- 98 % of parents believed there is
a need to teach values education in schools
- 97% of parents believed that
schools should inform parents and guardians about the values that are
fostered in schools.
98% of parents believed it was their
responsibility to teach values, followed by family and teachers.

and your ideas and input will be used for strengthening values education in
our school in the future.
