In PACE we talked about the importance of a mission statement, vision and objectives for the rest of the year. We looked at a few examples of this such as:
RSPCA: To prevent cruelty to animals by actively promoting their care and protection.
RSPCA Australia vision
To be the leading authority in animal care and protection.
The objectives of the RSPCA in Australia are:
- To prevent cruelty to animals by ensuring the enforcement of existing laws at federal and state level.
- To procure the passage of such amending or new legislation as is necessary for the protection of animals.
- To develop and promote policies for the humane treatment of animals that reflect contemporary values and scientific knowledge.
- To educate the community with regard to the humane treatment of animals.
- To engage with relevant stakeholders to improve animal welfare.
- To sustain an intelligent public opinion regarding animal welfare.
- To operate facilities for the care and protection of animals.
These objectives are supported by a federation of member Societies known as RSPCA Australia, a Board and administration.
Statement on the shelter and care of animals
The RSPCA will accept any animal offered into its care where it has the facilities, resources and legal capacity to do so.
8D then created their own mission statement, one they plan to follow for the remainder of the year:
Our mission this year is to make sure every one feels safe in our learning environment. No one gets left behind in schoolwork. We will ensure that everyone is happy in our class. We will embrace diversity and voice our opinions when necessary. We will make sure our classroom is neat at all times. We will rub out bullying. We shall have a positive out look on the future. We will help our classmates. Don’t interfere with anyone else’s belongings, We will always try our hardest in everything we take time to do and we will love our favourite teacher (Mr Garcia).
By year 8D class of 2013
I didn’t ask for the last one, but shucks, thanks guys…
8D also worked on a quick, ‘getting to know someone task’. Basically, they all sat next to someone they normally wouldn’t and, well, had a chat. Students needed to find out interesting, exciting and new facts that they may not have known. I will have to post the final chat soon, we all learnt lots of cool things (and some strange ones for good measure)
In the meantime:
