OUR CORE VALUES @ SALC Making Connections INTEGRITY

Making Connections INTEGRITY

Integrity – ‘The Spirit of Honour’

“We aim to demonstrate integrity in our relationships with those in our own and wider community. We believe integrity is at the core of how others see us and as such, seek to be hold fast to what is good, by being honest, fair, trustworthy, respectful and ethical in everything we do. Integrity means we do the right thing and make the right choices, even when no one is watching. When we practise integrity, there is no difference between our behaviour and what we know to be right.”

Titus 2:7 – ‘In everything set them an example by doing what is good’
