Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial
Spiritual Despite opposition and adversity, Jesus did not compromise or lose heart in his determination to accomplish his mission. We recognise that sometimes we will face difficulties and personal challenges in life but we know that we can pray for God's help because he has promised never to leave us.
Moral As the life of Jesus exemplifies, standing for justice and doing what we believe to be right, may not always result in change immediately. Sometimes we may feel discouraged. At our school, we teach that perseverance and endurance are important qualities in developing character.
Social As a community, we value and celebrate perseverance, encouraging one another consistently to take one step at a time to achieve our goals. We offer a wide range of opportunities for children to volunteer in social enterprises and to work with others from a range of ages and backgrounds to foster co-?operation and collaboration in problem solving.
Cultural We aim to foster a culture that recognises that ‘quick wins’ are not always possible and are often not sustainable. We believe that the principle of ‘training well’ is usually more fruitful in building character than ‘trying harder’. We actively seek out contemporary as well as historical role models who have achieved their goals through persevering, even in the toughest of circumstances.
