so that we can live, learn and grow with ‘courage always’.

• provide the environment, skills and opportunities where individuals can develop a positive sense of self and foster healthy relationships.
• interpret and design the curriculum so that it is inclusive, purposeful and challenging while demonstrating best teaching practice, so all learners will realise their full potential.
• in a spirit of inclusiveness, promote open, active and honest communication and democratic processes.
• invite the community to participate in school and parish-based initiatives and seek ways in which we become active global citizens.
