Values News!

January Values Newsletter

We have had a busy month already and appropriately, our value January is Effort! Some members of our school community helped to get the term off to a great start with our annual Epiphany Worship. Taylan, Corbin and Harry were our three wise men and Karlee provided the links and read the prayers to complete the service.


Our November winners for Respect were Paul, Sam, Leona and Rose.

Mrs Phillips received the Staff trophy.


In December, Olivia, Casey, Aaron and Marcelina received certificates for living the school values. Aaron and Mr Crole-Rees were the pupil and staff trophy winners.


“It is only through labour and painful effort, by grim energy and resolute courage, that we move on to better things.”                                                                                                Theodore Roosevelt

Effort is a new value chosen by the school community and we are thinking about these things at school:

  • Effort is trying hard and doing your best
  • Effort is aiming high
  • Effort is working your body and brain

Perhaps you could discuss these ways of giving effort at home:

  • Aim to finish what you start
  • Think positively
  • Aim to overcome problems by working hard yourself and encouraging others to do their best
