Vision & Values
Welcome to our schools, where a tapestry of values weaves together the essence of our vibrant community. Rooted in biblical wisdom, our guiding principles shape the foundation upon which we build an environment of warmth, understanding, and shared purpose.
At our school, we embrace the profound teachings of 1 Corinthians 13:4-8, where love is celebrated as patient and kind. We believe in fostering an environment free from jealousy, conceit, and pride. Our commitment to love means that we encourage behaviours that are not ill-mannered, selfish, or irritable. We strive to build a community that does not keep records of wrongs and rejoices in truth. Love, for us, is enduring, never giving up, and its foundation lies in unwavering faith, hope, and patience. We cherish the eternal nature of love as a guiding principle in all that we do.
1 Corinthians 13 v 4 -8: Love is patient and kind; it is not jealous or conceited or proud; love is not ill-mannered or selfish or irritable; love does not keep a record of wrongs; love is not happy with evil, but is happy with the truth. Love never gives up; and its faith, hope, and patience never fail. Love is eternal.
Drawing inspiration from 1 Corinthians 12:14-20, we recognise the strength in diversity. Just as the body is comprised of many parts, so too is our school community made up of individuals with unique talents and perspectives. We understand that each person contributes uniquely, and we celebrate the richness that arises from this diversity. No one is excluded; every member is an integral part of our collective body, fostering an environment where cooperation thrives and the interconnectedness of all is valued.
1 Corinthians 13 v 4 -8Even so the body is not made up of one part but of many. Now if the foot should say, “Because I am not a hand, I do not belong to the body,” it would not for that reason stop being part of the body. And if the ear should say, “Because I am not an eye, I do not belong to the body,” it would not for that reason stop being part of the body. If the whole body were an eye, where would the sense of hearing be? If the whole body were an ear, where would the sense of smell be? But in fact God has placed the parts in the body, every one of them, just as he wanted them to be. If they were all one part, where would the body be? As it is, there are many parts, but one body. The eye cannot say to the hand, “I don’t need you!” And the head cannot say to the feet, “I don’t need you!”
In alignment with Ephesians 4:15, our commitment to honesty is unwavering. We believe in speaking the truth with love, fostering an atmosphere where open communication and transparency are paramount. As we strive to emulate Christ, we recognise that honesty is a cornerstone in our journey to personal and collective growth.
Ephesians 4 v 15: We will speak the truth with love. We will grow up in every way to be like Christ, who is the head.
Colossians 3:13 guides our approach to conflict resolution. We advocate for a community where anger is replaced with forgiveness. Understanding that forgiveness is a reflection of the Lord's forgiveness to us, we actively cultivate an environment where grace and compassion prevail.
Colossians 3 v 13: Do not be angry with each other, but forgive each other. If someone does wrong to you, then forgive him. Forgive each other because the Lord forgave you.
Galatians 6:5 underscores our commitment to personal accountability. Each member of our school community is encouraged to take responsibility for their individual lives and strive for their creative best. We believe that by embracing responsibility, we contribute positively to the collective success and growth of our school community.
Galatians 6 v 5: Each of you must take responsibility for doing the creative best you can with your own life.
Grounded in the wisdom of Galatians 3:28, we celebrate the oneness in Christ Jesus. Our school values and respects the unique differences that make each individual special. We foster an inclusive environment where diversity is embraced, recognising that our unity and togetherness transcends any differences that may exist among us.
Galatians 3 v 28: you are all one in Christ Jesus.
