Our Values

We carefully consider our core values and philosophy. This fundamental approach underpins our teaching and learning and everything that happens in our school community.


At DCC the development of character is paramount. We place Christian values such as respect, care, love and patience at the centre of our community and provide opportunities for students to develop as whole people. Working with families, we will help your child to develop a respect for others, a spirit of excellence and positive work habits to help them become the leaders for the future.


We value excellence in all areas of life and support our students to help maximise their abilities and attitudes. Our goal is to speak positively into the lives of our students and to encourage them to strive for high academic standards. We do this by providing a loving structured environment, a well-planned curriculum and effective assessment processes.

Along with academic excellence, we encourage students to love and serve others and give them opportunities to exercise this in their classrooms and in the community. We assist them to develop good communication skills and the ability to solve problems and to work in teams, which are all qualities required for future success.


Family atmosphere and sense of community are important parts of a child’s complete education. Discovery is a place where children feel they belong, where their teachers love and respect them, enabling them to develop as learners and young people.

Character. Excellence. Community.
