Our Special Character
Our school’s Special Character is defined in the Special Character Statement:
Because God is the creator of heaven and Earth, of all things visible and invisible, sustaining and ruling over creation, including man … and is the source of all wisdom and knowledge, God the Father, Jesus his Son, and the Holy Spirit are relevant to every area of study and endeavour in the school.
The school reflects this by:
- b) Teaching Christian values and behaviour though the process of acknowledgement of sin, repentance and acceptance of Jesus’ gift of grace.
This statement puts our values in the context of the Lord’s Grace. We want our students to develop a forgiving nature, within a restorative Christian environment. We know that we live in a fallen world with sin as part of our nature. However, through repentance and a commitment to change we access God’s Grace. Through this Grace we enter the eternal Kingdom of God.
