Ethos

In education today we talk about the characteristic spirit of a school(Ethos). We Spiritans believe that this Spirit should be present and enliven each moment and every part of the school community.
It is this living Spirit that we find articulated in the Seven Core Values that are at the heart of each of our educational works and that give our schools their particular ethos.  These seven values include

  • Openness to the Spirit
  • A Sense of Community
  • Option for the Poor
  • Commitment to Service
  • Global Vision
  • High Educational Standards
  • Personal and Faith Development

For the students of each of our schools, and who are the primary agents of their own education and personal and faith development, our goal is that you find in these values a measure and a guide for the life that
you wish to live and for the choices that you will make both now and into the future.

For the staff of our schools, our hope is you will find in this ethos an inspiration and a road map for your teaching and pastoral care.

For all who entrust their children to the care of our Spiritan schools, we hope you find the seven core values the direction and pedagogy that you wish for your children.

The Spiritan educational ethos is immersed in this transformational education.  The holistic development (Personal and Faith development) of all in our schools is at the very heart of the Spiritan educational ethos.
