We wanted to find a way for our students to be able to understand and live out our Values. We decided to use a Bear mascot as the way to do this. We held a competition to design a Bear and then set about making our Bear. Every student in the school helped in some way with this and we now have a huge 8 foot Bear in our entrance lobby.
We all now try to be a BEAR:
E—EVERYONE is treated the same
A—AIM high in all you try
R— RESPECT and care for each other
N.B. It should be pointed out that Oaktree is a non-smoking environment and smoking by adults and students is not allowed on the school premises.
