Our School Vision
Inspiring all, flourishing together, sharing our God given gifts.
LOVE – includes all of these:
Respect – Helpfulness, tolerance, honesty
Jesus’ command to ‘love our enemy’ – we can disagree, but treat each other with respect.
Respect for God’s world, his people and ourselves.
Peace - Forgiveness, democracy, appreciation
God’s peace - in ourselves, in our relationships, in the world.
‘Blessed are the peacemakers’ – where can we make peace?
Perseverance – courage, resilience, determination, passion
St Paul - run the race of life.
Perseverance of the Magi, of Abraham, and many who ‘travelled’ in the bible.
Collaboration – Generosity, friendship, being supportive
The disciples sent out in pairs; St Paul’s advice to the churches to work together – we achieve more by working together.
Sharing - Jesus said give away a coat if you have two etc
Confidence – independence; trust
Jesus encouraged the weak and those of low status (beggars, lepers, the disabled)
Psalm 139 - God knew and loved each of us before we were born
Creativity – kindness, thankfulness
Using our God-given gifts to be creative. Thanking God for these gifts.
Knowing we are valued by God.
God re-creates what is damaged or broken, including us – potter and clay.
We can help others to be ‘re-created’ by showing kindness
