*Our Christian Value for the term*
Our Christian Value this term is ‘Respect.’
Our value for this term is Respect. Being respectful is one of the key ingredients to being the best person you can be. “Every human being, of whatever origin, of whatever station, deserves respect. We must each respect others even as we respect ourselves.”
Respect is also one of our school rules (Ready, Respectful and Safe) and is a value we hold dear in school. The children learn to recognise respect in others, while also showing respect themselves.
“Respect other people's feelings. It might mean nothing to you, but it could mean everything to them.” Roy T. Bennett.
They also learn the importance of showing respect to our belongings and to our environment. The children are developing their understanding of how we can respect our beautiful world and what we can further do as a school, as a Plastic Free School.
When it comes to climate change, “be the change you wish to be in the world.” Mahatma Gandhi.
