School Mission

At Buchanan School our vision is to provide quality learning opportunities for all students within a safe, caring community. Buchanan School's mission and purpose encompasses the academic, emotional, physical and social dimensions to provide quality learning opportunities for all students. We respect the uniqueness and diversity of individuals and endeavour to create an environment which promotes dignity, worth and a sense of belonging, as well as preparation for living contributing to society.

School Motto

Together We Are Better. The school mascot is a dolphin called 'Frankie". The students chose a dolphin because dolphins swim together in pods, interact well with humans and are extremely intelligent. The dolphin mascot supports our motto "Together We Are Better".
