Safety, respect and learning are the key underpinnings of the quality education on offer at Centenary Heights State High School.

When students, parents and staff show respect for themselves and each other in the way in which daily business is done then learning will take place within a safe and supportive environment. It is impossible to divorce who you are from what you do, they are inextricably linked. Johann Von Goethe is quoted as saying: ‘The way you see people is the way you treat them – and the way you treat them is what they become.’

The school believes that teachers are charged with the role of second parent and this concept has a high value within the school.
