To motivate to learn; to teach to think; to encourage to imagine; and to show the compassion to care globally.
Benton Junior College is committed to developing and nurturing a community of life-long learners. We support the development of the whole person; a person with a positive self image, who seeks excellence and respects the rights of others. Our intention is to make learning relevant and meaningful to children. Our focus is on children as capable individuals and as active constructors of their own learning. We aim to instil children with the motivation to learn, the ability to think, the courage to imagine and the compassion to care.
Children are encouraged to develop a sense of identity and self-worth, recognising their own strengths, talents and areas for improvement. A flexible, happy and non-judgemental environment allows children to take risks and draw on their natural curiosity to research and confidently verbalize innovative ideas. The positive climate encourages cooperation, positive behaviour and effective communication between teachers, children and peers. The children are given the opportunity to grow and develop a love of learning in a challenging yet safe environment.
Steeped in history, Benton Junior College is one of the popular school in the Mornington area. Our aim is clear and present in all aspects of the school. Respect, Compassion and Resilience are some of the qualities demonstrated towards the personal attributes we strive to gain and display in our community.
We endeavour to celebrate each other’s uniqueness by providing opportunity for all and to develop a culture that identifies that the journey towards excellence is often paved with trial and error, risk taking, learning from mistakes, flexibility and adaptability. We believe that encouraging students to take ownership of the learning is critical in achieving the best learning outcomes and that implicit in this concept is that students learn their own areas of strength and areas of development, through useful and explicit feedback.
