“Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me” (Mt 25:40). The belief that Christ is present in every person we meet is a belief that is fundamental to all that we strive to achieve as a community of schools.
Our schools must always be places where those who are most vulnerable are met with the greatest compassion and a fierce determination to challenge those things that stand in the way of each person being “fully alive”. For children in our school to flourish, they must have every need met, such that the child who is without love is loved; the child without joy is brought to happiness; the child who cannot learn due to the trauma in their lives is brought to wisdom.
We will unlock the potential of each child to truly delight in their God-given gifts. It is a process that requires great love, great compassion, and great understanding, recognising that the lives we support are fragile and the consequences of our actions profound
