Our Values


Alta-1 is an organisation committed to healthy relationships.
It was founded, established and launched on the strength of relationship and the work it engages in is only effective because of the relationships that exist between staff and students.


The work of Alta-1 is the work of transformation. As such this is a critical cultural value. It is essential that the transformation that occurs is not just in the students, but is present at all levels of the organisation.


As a value, flourishing is a commitment to creatively bring out the health, wholeness and purpose in every person – staff and student – As a College we strive to create flourishing spaces for continued growth and whole-hearted living.

Alta-1's commitment to child-safety

Alta-1 is committed to being a child-safe organisation. We have a legal, moral and mission-driven responsibility to create environments that respect, nurture and empower our students.

Our students have the fundamental right to be safe and feel safe while in our care.

Child safety is embedded in our culture; it is at the centre of our thought, values and actions.

We pay particular attention to the cultural safety of Aboriginal students and those from culturally and/or linguistically diverse backgrounds.

We acknowledge the increased vulnerability of some of our students, such as those with a disability.

We value and empower our students to participate in decisions that affect their lives.

We engage only the most suitable people to work with our students, and maintain high quality supervision and professional learning.

We value the input of families and the wider community in our work.

We foster a culture of openness that supports all persons to safely disclose risks of harm to children.

We treat allegations and safety concerns seriously. We promptly respond in line with our robust policies and procedures.

We have a legal and moral obligation to contact authorities when we are concerned for the safety of a student.

Every person involved in Alta-1 has a responsibility to understand his/her role in in ensuring the safety and wellbeing of our students
