In a community there is a way of doing things that guides us in our actions and thinking. It is where we see the deeply held values at play. For us as a Lutheran school, the values of love, hope, compassion, courage, justice, quality, appreciation, forgiveness, service and humility informs all that we do. Through being in community together, we grow these values within ourselves and within each other. There is an expectation that everyone strives for quality, respectful relationships, cares for others and the enhancement of the dignity of all. When we step outside of these values we find ourselves in conflict. As we live within them, people flourish as they are engaged and energised.
These values have a timeless quality as we see them lived out in the words and actions of Jesus. The ‘Christ the Way’ part of the College mission statement is a call for us to live out these values, which He has taught us. We are encouraged to live a hope-filled, purposeful life strengthened by His grace that grows abundance in the people around us.
