​​​​​Leading with Courage and Compassion to reach our Potential....at Springwood Road State School we believe that with the right amount of courage and compassion everyone can achieve their best.

We live by the 8 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey and this enables everyone to be a leader and more improtantly a learner. 

HABIT 1 BE PROACTIVE

I am a responsible person. I take initiative. I choose my actions, attitudes and moods. I do not blame others for my mistakes. I can only be offended if I choose to be.

HABIT 2 BEGIN WITH THE END IN MIND

I plan ahead and set goals. I do things that have meaning and make a difference. I am an important part of my classroom and contribute to my school's mission and vision, and look for ways to be a good citizen.

HABIT 3 PUT FIRST THINGS FIRST

I spend my time on things that are most important. This means I say no to things I know I shouldn't do. I set priorities, make a schedule, and follow my plan. I am disciplined and organised.

HABIT 4 THINK WIN WIN

I balance courage for getting what I want with consideration for what other want. I make deposits in other's Emotional Bank Accounts. When conflicts arise, I look for options that work for both sides.

HABIT 5 SEEK FIRST TO UNDERSTAND THEN TO BE UNDERSTOOD

I listen to other people's ideas and feelings. I try to see things from their viewpoints. I listen to others without interrupting. I am confident in voicing my ideas. I look people in the eyes when talking.

HABIT 6 SYNERGIZE

I value other people's strengths and learn from them. I get along well with other people, even those who are different from me. I work well in groups. I seek out other people's ideas to solve problems because I know that by teaming with others we can create better solutions than any one of us.

HABIT 7 SHARPEN THE SAW

I take care of my body by eating right, exercising and getting sleep. I spend time with family and friends. I learn in lots of ways and lots of places, not just school. I find meaningful ways to help others.

HABIT 8 FIND YOUR VOICE

I have found something that I am good at and really like doing. I am proud, but do not boast. instead, I use my expertise to help and inspire others.
