Statement of Democratic Principles

Catholic Regional College Melton is committed to the principles of Australian democracy.

We believe in an accountable, democratically elected government.

We respect and observe the rule of law and believe that no person is above the law.

We believe in equal rights for all before the law, regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, sexuality, gender or other attributes.

We believe in the freedom of religion, and also the need to practice tolerance and understanding of others' beliefs.

We believe in the value of freedom of speech and freedom of association, but also acknowledge that we have the responsibility not to abuse this freedom.

We believe in the values of openness, inclusion and tolerance, and value and respect all members of the school community regardless of background.
