Inclusion and Connection

Peel High School image

Our goal is to maximise the life opportunities of all of our students in education, employment, citizenship, identity and - fundamental to everything else - individual wellbeing. We accept that differences do not have to mean conflict. At Peel we believe that respectful relationships underpin our basic operation as a school.

The staff across the school model and promote the values of inclusion and connection with the community.

Student leadership representation is multicultural. In particular we have had many Indigenous school captains and SRC representatives, including the 2005 boy Captain, who was the Tamworth Junior Citizen of the Year.

High expectations of achievement in all aspects of life is encouraged in all students. Peel students have achieved academic success and many have been of the first generation in their family to complete the HSC.

Aboriginal staff and a team of tutors work with all students who need assistance and support and encourage them to excel in their field of choice.

A pastoral care and student welfare network is evident. Students and their families regard the school as a safe and supportive place. The lifeblood of the network is the shared commitment to meeting the challenge of Inclusion and Connection. A student was quoted in a speech recently - 'People aren't forced to get along because they already do'.
