Dimension 1

In 2012 Upper Coomera State College (UCSC) implemented Dimension One: Attitudes and Perceptions, across the college.  

Dimension one revolves around the key concept that the attitudes and perceptions of students, teachers and parents/care givers directly affect student learning. DoL recognises that attitudes and perceptions related to the teacher, other students, an individual’s ability and the value of an assigned task can impact on a student’s learning experience. 

When attitudes and perceptions are positive learning is enhanced; when they are negative, learning suffers. DoL also recognises that the development and maintenance of positive attitudes and perceptions regarding learning are the responsibility of the student, teacher and parents.

At UCSC we are committed to developing the attitudes and perceptions of staff, students and the wider community to make this a college where students want to learn, teachers want to teach and where parents believe that UCSC provides the best possible outcomes for their children.

In order to achieve this, it is our goal to make sure every student at UCSC:

  • Feels accepted by their teachers and each other
  • Has a sense of comfort and order
  • Sees learning tasks as interesting and worthwhile
  • Believes they have the ability and thinking resources to complete tasks
  • Is able to understand and be clear about learning tasks
  • Feels safe at school.
