Sacred Heart Values Framework

The values framework for Sacred Heart is based on three inspirational statements which were discussed and formulated by both staff and students.  These statements help the school community focus on the culture we are trying to build together.

The three statements are:

We respect ourselves and others.     Therefore I.........

We all have a right to learn.                Therefore I ........

We are an inlcusive community.        Therefore I........

 

A poster was created for each statement(click on the statements above to see posters) and these are displayed in every room of the school.

When the posters were first introduced into the classrooms, teachers and students discussed what each poster meant to them as a class and as a school and then completed the sentence 'Therefore I.......'  In doing this the children had ownership of the values framework and were more willing to implement it on a daily basis.

These statements are continually reflected upon and revised to keep them relevant and purposeful.
