The Values I Encourage 

Resilience

Showing persistence and perseverance in the face of difficulty. Having the ability to face challenges with confidence and with good humour. Being able to respond positively to setbacks and to see them as an opportunity to learn.

Kindness

Recognising that kindness and consideration are an essential part of a civilised society and a happy community. Acting with compassion and showing empathy towards those in difficulty.

Curiosity

Having an inquisitive and investigative attitude.

Integrity

Showing the strength of character to be an honest and trustworthy member of society and to stand by one’s beliefs. Being willing to accept personal responsibility where things go wrong and to learn from mistakes when they occur. Demonstrating intellectual honesty by acknowledging sources of information and ideas.  

Self-awareness

Being reflective about the process of learning and what we do. Showing an awareness of both strengths and weaknesses and taking responsibility for personal development.

Collaboration

Demonstrating an awareness that collaboration is a vital skill in society. Working with others to bring about the greater good and to offer service. Showing generosity towards other opinions and ideas and an ability to recognise that other ideas may be better than one’s own. Working together to learn.

Ambition

Being forward-thinking with a vision of the future, and showing the determination and courage to follow this path. 

Open-mindedness

Being open-minded to the wide range of beliefs, opinions and cultures that make up the modern world and yet having the strength of character to stand by one’s own. Showing respect and acceptance to those who hold contrary views and the intellectual flexibility to see others’ points of view. Having a global outlook and actively contributing to a multi-cultural society.

Risk-taking

Demonstrating a confident, imaginative and innovative approach to what is possible. Pushing oneself both mentally and physically in unfamiliar situations. Showing curiosity and creativity to explore new ideas and opportunities. 

Independence

Showing self-reliance and resourcefulness in all actions.

Humility

Having awareness of one’s strengths and abilities but with a sense of modesty.

Recognising the distinction and benefits of one's own life, making the most of the opportunities it provides and understanding with sensitivity and humility that others do not enjoy the same advantages.
