Our School Virtues
A virtue is a personal quality that is good. Something that makes us a better person. Something that makes a positive difference in our lives as well as the lives of others.
Something you do because it is the right thing to do – even when no one is watching.
Every week in school we focus on a virtue to live by.
“I have come that they may have life and have it to the full.” (John 10:10)
Jesus’ words in John’s gospel express the aim of human life as ‘human flourishing’.
In life we aim to flourish by developing our character through the pursuit of our virtues. If we follow the virtues, we will be better people, who flourish in life, learn more about ourselves and others around us and lead by example in the way that Jesus taught us.
Below is an outline of the virtues we focus on throughout the school year.
Respect & Courtesy
Love & Charity
