St Michael's School Values

Love, Respect and Integrity

 

Love

Feeling and exhibiting caring concern and empathy for others.  Knowing each other as likeable and loving individuals.

"Never believe that a few caring people can't change the world. For, indeed, that's the only thing that ever has."   Margaret Mead

 

 

Respect

Due regard for the feelings, wishes, or rights of others.  Treating people, experiences and learning with respect. 

"We are  sun and moon, dear friend; we are sea and land. It is not our purpose to become each other; it is to recognise each other, to learn to see the other and honour him for what he is: each the other's opposite and complement.”  Hermann Hesse

 

Integrity

Late Middle English from French intégrité or Latin integritas.the quality of being honest and having strong moral principles.

Looking to ourselves, being honest and true. “Integrity is choosing courage over comfort; choosing what is right over what is fun, fast, or easy; and choosing to practice our values rather than simply professing them.”
