Sandhurst Catholic Schools – Our Values

Generosity in the Service of Others

With Jesus as our model, we celebrate our vocation to develop each person’s potential, to be consciously transformational, serving God in the Church and in the world with a committed and practical concern for the poor.

Commitment and Faithfulness

We seek to enable students to find God in all things, to live out their vocation in life with joy in the service of others. We are committed to covenant relationships.

Understanding and Inclusion

We promote the God-given dignity of each person, honouring the cultures and faith traditions of all. We value the richness of diversity and difference.

Forgiveness and Reconciliation

We seek to support one another, to deepen the bonds of community which unite us, by promoting mutual understanding and reconciliation.

Respect and Responsibility

We strive to build a community committed to personal and communal growth, founded on justice where we take responsibility for each other, and we are accountable for our own actions.

Integrity and Self Discipline

We value each person as being essentially good, with freedoms, rights and responsibilities. We are dedicated to students and value life-long learning. We provide opportunities for our students to be open to a personal relationship with God.

Love and Compassion

We seek to celebrate life as a gift from a loving God and, with Jesus as our model, to inspire the courage and confidence to serve others, especially those less fortunate than ourselves.

Reverence and Awe

We celebrate the presence of God in our midst in the wonder and gifts of each person, in the beauty and awe of God’s creation, in the daily events of our world. We strive to live in right relationship with the earth and all God’s creatures.

Joy, Optimism and Creativity

We rejoice in the creativity and gifts of the Spirit in each person. We believe God is present in each of us – in our working, our praying and our being together.

Peace, Justice and Honesty

We seek to make justice visible by living simply and justly, by being honest and fair and by building peace through relationships and care of each other.
