Democratic Principles

Lowther Hall Anglican Grammar School adheres to the Democratic Principles as required by the VRQA for School Registration*.

The School, together with all Australian citizens, recognises the freedom to pursue religious beliefs and to follow a religious view that is founded upon those beliefs. We commit to the fundamental freedoms of speech and association for all Australians so long as those freedoms are not used to subvert the rule of law. 

We acknowledge the right of our elected Governments, their departments and officers to require certain conditions relating to the programs and teaching practices in our School.

We acknowledge that all persons are entitled to be treated equally before the law and, as far as it is within our capacity to do so, we endeavour to treat all members of our community with equity and fairness.

We are committed to living in peace with our fellow Australians irrespective of differences in faith, race or culture, and are committed to the social value of respect for all persons. Lowther Hall is open to families who seek an education based on Christian principles and standards in the Anglican tradition.

*elected government; the rule of law; equal rights for all before the law; freedom of religion; freedom of speech and association; and the values of openness and tolerance.
