OUR CORE VALUES @ SALC Making Connections COMMUNITY

Making Connections

COMMUNITY

Community – ‘The Spirit of Belonging and Care’

St Andrews is a community in which we experience a shared sense of belonging, identity and connectedness. It is underpinned by respect, acceptance, inclusion and interdependence. Belonging to the St Andrews community confers responsibilities, as well as rights, and so we work and serve together for the common good. Living in and building community means that we treat people with the love, respect and concern they deserve as a child of God. When we practise care, we value the whole person, and show that the person really matters to us and our community.

1 Thessalonians 5:11 – ‘Encourage one another and build up one another’

 

Caring – Open-minded – Empathy – Cooperation – Tolerance
