Embedded in our aims and values are the principles of inclusion, equality and diversity and we were delighted that Upper Sixth students led the school’s response to the tragic death of George Floyd in an assembly which both informed and challenged our community. We are fully committed to equality in all aspects of school life and we recognise that it is not enough to ‘not be racist’ we must be anti-racist and we need to continue our work in challenging discrimination in all its forms.
The Aim of The Dixie Grammar School is to educate its students to become full, confident and active members of the community, thus preparing them for the global society of the 21st century.
The mental, spiritual, moral and physical well-being of every pupil is to be achieved by striving for the highest standards in Academic Work, Assemblies, Service, Cultural, Sporting and Intellectual Extra-Curricular Activities.
In effective pursuit of these standards staff will help pupils develop:
- Responsibility, integrity, self-discipline and diligence
- Honesty and good manners
- Respect for others and commitment to the community
- Confidence and a self-respect based on self-knowledge
- Independent learning and teamwork
- Knowledge and understanding of other cultures and societies
