Friday bulletin 14/09/18


We will focus on the first two School Values throughout the month of September. Your Year Heads, your PSLs (Guidance teachers), all your teachers and I will expect to see you showing these values in your attitude, work and behaviour both in and out of school throughout September. I will be speaking to many of you to discuss how you are striving to embrace these values. Think carefully about how each value applies to you.

Our September values are:


• To perform to the best of your ability

• To seize every important opportunity

• To try something new

• To accept others and yourself

• To be enthusiastic and motivated to learn



• Supportive to others

• Unified commitment to improvement

• Appreciating achievements of all kinds
