Victory College is guided by a strong mission statement, a strategic vision and shared values between staff and students.
We equip each student to live a purposeful life.
With regard to our mission, purpose is key. We are compelled by the universal appeal of the term “purpose”. Discovering and pursuing our God-given purpose is the key to a valuable and rewarding life. As a result we find meaning in belonging to something bigger than ourselves; we find satisfaction through the accomplishment of our highest potential; reward through positive relationships and caring and giving to others; and joy in having our life’s goals aligned with our gifts and talents.
The Victory Vision is a school
Staff and students actions are guided each day by our core values, which are:
Honour inspires high esteem and admiration; it should first be given and then pursued. We give honour to God, each other, our country, our College; we gain honour through courage, persistence, integrity, respect, determination, courtesy, resilience and confidence.
Service is an act of assistance inspired by Jesus’ servant ministry. It is a universal and timeless adhesive agent of human society and therefore paramount in raising citizens and leaders of our new generation. We practice it through benevolence, encouragement, collegiality, leadership, fairness and citizenship.
Excellence means being your best, being better tomorrow than you were yesterday, and matching your practice with your potential. We value excellence by appreciating quality and beauty, potential and talent, passion and vitality, gratitude and joy.
Faith is being certain of our promise of salvation through Christ Jesus. It generates hope, love, kindness, compassion, godliness, faithfulness, forgiveness, mercy, humility, self-control, diligence and patience.
Understanding develops when perception, thinking and judgment is brought into alignment with truth. It is fostered by a love of learning, curiosity and open-mindedness. It provides the basis for common-sense, creativity, innovation, perspective, and ultimately, wisdom.
The Victory College crest is part of our heritage and represents the essence of our College. It reflects the heart and purpose of our school and is proudly worn on the uniforms of our students.
The cross in the foreground represents our firm Christian foundation. Looking past the cross, the soft rays of the sun in the background depict both the divine inspiration that is needed to understand God’s truth, as well as our quest to provide inspirational teaching to our students.
Further down, viewers get a glimpse of the local area surrounding Gympie: the blue representing the Mary River; the green representing the rural areas surrounding our town; and the yellow representing the beautiful beaches of our Cooloola Coast. The gum leaves at the bottom of the shield represent our local vegetation.
Finally, three of our shared core values were included on the banner at the bottom of the crest, reminding us all to honour, serve and strive for excellence at all times.
