Character Education

Character Education is at the heart of our educational programme. Educating the whole person necessarily involves every aspect of the individual - the intellectual, the creative, the social, the moral, the physical and the spiritual. We place Character Education at the centre of the educational process thus creating a foundation for developing the God-given potential of our pupils. Growth in right-thinking and acting opens the way to a more truthful and expansive way of looking at oneself and others, providing a new perspective on perceived limitations and capabilities.

We have developed a unique programme for teaching character. This programme focuses specifically on a set of core values and recognises that developing these requires a comprehensive educational approach. This process relies on genuine and close relationships within the School community. The strength of these relationships provides the foundation for promoting good character within the context of real life issues. We expect all members of our School to act as good role models by living harmoniously with each other and the natural world.
A new character quality is introduced each month. The quality is used within assemblies, discussions, activities and curriculum work.
