Each month, our school focuses on one Faith objective or  Gospel Value. A primary class partners with a junior class to explore this Gospel Value, to promote a school-wide culture of collaboration, to create inquiry-based faith experiences, and to promote a growth mindset.

Gospel Value  -  "Community". Students answer the question, "How do I promote safety and respect in the classroom and on the school yard?" 

Gospel Value  -  "Dignity of Persons". Students answer the questions, "How do I include others? How do I make them feel welcome?"

Gospel Value - "Peace".  Students answer the questions, "What does peace feel like? How are we peacemakers?"

Gospel Value - "Hope".  Students answer the question, "How do we inspire others to do their best to achieve their goals or dreams?"
Gospel Value -  "Justice".  Students answer the question, "How do we demonstrate fairness?"  

Gospel Value - "Love".  Students answer the question, "Who am I grateful for in my life?"

Gospel Value - "Faith".  Students answer the questions, "How do I actively participate in prayer? Do I treat others as Jesus taught us to do?"

Gospel Value - "Care for God's Creation".  Students answer the questions, "How do we demonstrate care for the environment? How do we accept all people as thy are a child of God? What makes us unique?"

Gospel Value - "Excellence". Students answer the questions, "How do we give generously to those in need?How do I demonstrate responsibility, initiative, and a commitment to learning? Do I take on a leadership role?"
