'Work Hard and Play Hard'
'Give me a place to stand and I will move the Earth' – Archimedes

All children are introduced to and understand the school's ethos – 'Give me a place to stand and I will move the Earth.' With that in mind, and with a further inclusion of the school motto 'Work Hard and Play Hard', the children develop a strong sense of self-worth with the added value of a work ethic which ultimately is reflected in their achievements.

The school believes:

in the all round child who will progress to the next stage of education with self esteem, self confidence and resilience.
in good manners, that a child will at all times be courteous and thoughtful towards those whom he/she meets, where qualities of kindness, honesty, tolerance and consideration are essential pre-requisites for a child's development.
in physical fitness and in the striving for excellence in sporting endeavour. We believe in competition conducted within the rules of a game, fair play and in good sportsmanship.
in the individuality of the child, that each child be encouraged and treated fairly according to the range of abilities and his/her particular needs.
in equality of opportunity and treatment between the sexes, different age groups, nationalities and creeds.
in ambition and hard work as honourable and vital qualities.
in independence and self reliance – that children be taught to look after themselves and others, to cope and hold their own, in any situation.
that a child should be taught the skills of personal organisation so that progress is not hindered through inefficiency and that maximum benefit be derived from all challenges and opportunities.
in happiness firmly rooted in the child's belief that he/she is appreciated, loved and understood.In this way a child's potential may be wholly realised while remaining happy at school
