God is at the centre of our lives and as a school community we try to grow in love and care by following the example of Jesus.  The Gospel values of trust, honesty, forgiveness, self-respect, self-discipline, loving and caring for one another must be part of everyday life in our school. We recognise the importance of home, school and church working in partnership.
