The Behaviours and Beliefs

Taking our behaviours and beliefs, we have grouped them in what we believe to be a good catholic education. Combining all of these behaviours in this way, the people involved in our Academy will demonstrate the catholic gospel values we hold sacred.

The Mission

An Open Door, an Open Mind
Be open to different ideas, different ways of learning, different people, different experiences and different communities.

Raise Aspirations
Show how a person can make a difference, can be part of something bigger than themselves, can be anything they like.

Stay Curious
Ask why things are the way they are, challenge the ways things could be and imagine how things can benefit, everyone.

Create a Safe Environment
Where people can express ideas, explore their learning, can try new things and can learn from successes, and failures.

Pay Attention, Front and Back
Respect, learn from and listen to those in front of you, and be a role model and inspiration for those behind you.
