Value Relationships

“Few things will pay you bigger dividends than the time and trouble you take to understand people. Nothing will give you greater satisfaction or bring you more happiness”. John Maxwell.

The very essence of God is relational, and that essential quality has been imprinted on us as humans. We are made to be in a relationship with our creator and with the rest of His creation.  Everybody wants to and needs to be somebody and everyone can be somebody when somebody understands and believes in them.

Relationships are the glue that holds team members together. Whether that team is a classroom full of students, a family, a church or a sports team.  Fostering good relationships between our staff and our students, their families and our greater community is a priority.  Experience shows that students who feel secure, loved, respected and valued are more likely to open up and share with you and receive from you.

It is our desire to teach and demonstrate:

  • Attentive listening
  • Respect
  • Trust
  • Responsibility
  • Kindness

When we build this kind of relationship all parties understand what their role is in the education process, and this is what leads to success.

“What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made in the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead.” – Nelson Mandela
