Spiritual Development

We develop our Christian values of love, care, compassion and consideration by helping our children to explore their inner self and grow their unique potential. This journey enriches our lives as we learn to respect and value the ‘selfness’ of others and encourages our continued search for meaning and purpose in life and across the curriculum.

This is exemplified in school as we encourage our community to:

·       make sense of our own feelings and emotions

·       value imagination, intuition and insight

·       engage in reflective thought

·       show emotive appreciation of beauty and kindness

·       express thoughts and feelings through art, music and literature

·       respond with a sense of awe, wonder and mystery
