  • They know they are loved
  • They grow in their love for God and His word
  • They are happy, safe, secure and cherished
  • They are stimulated, motivated, challenged and engaged in learning
  • They have equal opportunities to succeed in all areas of school life
  • They achieve success which is recognised and celebrated
  • They are well behaved, caring and respectful
Together, as God’s family we are learning through love, forgiveness, friendship and courage to use our unique gifts, challenging and transforming our world.
