Vision and Values

 

Vision

Our vision is to promote self-worth that inspires our students to live well, achieve their goals and be a force for good in their school and in the world.

We are inspired by Matthew 5:16 in its commission to “Let your light shine”. We strive in all we do to find the best in ourselves and each other for the benefit of our communities.
