Making Connections EXCELLENCE
‘The Spirit of Excellence’
We are committed to the pursuit of the highest levels of personal attainment in all aspects of education – academic, pastoral and co-curricular. Achievement and improvement are actively encouraged, supported, recognised and celebrated. People bring their gifts, talents and abilities to fruition by striving to achieve their Personal Best, giving careful attention to every task, relationship, and interaction. When we strive for Personal Bests, self-discipline, hard work, persistence, resilience and tenacity in achieving goals are demonstrated. We strive to be the best we can be, not just for ourselves alone, but to make a difference in the world.
Ecclesiastes 9:10 –
‘Whatever you do, do well’
