Principal's Update

This year we have adopted the core values of Respect, Diligence, Integrity and Kindness. One to be taught each term alongside the devotional themes of God is Sovereign (term 1), God is Creator (term 2), God is Holy (term 3) and God is Redeemer (term 4).  

We have also adopted an underpinning value of Humility before God. In classes, and as a staff, we are currently unpacking these values and seeking to understand what they mean in a real life context.

In the above diagram a tree is represented. This tree is the one spoken of in Psalm 1 which represents a person "whose leaf does not wither" and which "brings forth fruit in its season" and whatever they "do they prosper" because their "delight is in the law of the Lord".
