Our School Values

Our school values enable us to put our school vision into action by guiding us on how we should be with each other in the day to day life of our school community. 

PERSEVERANCE

We work hard at our learning, meeting the challenges we face along the way with determination and courage. Keep going!

 

'But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. '

Philppians 3:14

REVERENCE

We show a deep respect for each other which comes from our knowledge of God's love for all. No one is forgotten or left out.

 

'The first commandment is: The Lord is one. And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. The second is this: You shall love your neighbour as yourself. There is no other commandment greater than these.'

Mark 12:28-34

FORGIVENESS

We each make mistakes, and we each need to give and receive the chance of starting again. Getting things wrong is an opportunity to grow and learn.

 

'Forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.'

Matthew 6:12-14

TRUST

We are honest and know we can rely on others in our school community to support us. None of us can be our best without the help of each other.

 

‘Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me.'

John 14:1 (Jesus’ words to his disciples)

FELLOWSHIP

We care for one another because good relationships make for good learning. Friendship is fun!

 

‘Greater love has no one than this that he lay down his life for friends. You are my friends if you do what I command you.'

John 15: 13-14 (Jesus’ words at the Last Supper)

JOY

Let the rooms of our school be full of happiness and excitement in our learning. We believe that joy is not found in things but in abundant life and abundant living. Growing into who God has made us to be is the adventure of a lifetime!

 

'For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking, but of righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit'

Romans 14:17
