Why choose an Anglican School?
Many of its qualities of course will be shared with good schools everywhere, whether run by the state or by denominational churches. However our schools evidence a commitment to learning, to justice, to individual achievement and to wholeness.
OUR ANGLICAN SCHOOLS ARE CHARACTERISED BY:
Appreciation of diversity
The Anglican Church in its long history has come to value diversity as a positive good and a distinguishing feature of a civilised community. Anglican schools should enliven such appreciation of diversity and acceptance and the care ethic implicit in this respect for others.
High respect for intellectual endeavour
The teaching / learning ethic will show itself in hard work, intellectual rigour and openness to ideas and debate.
Sense of social responsibility
The service ethic and a commitment to social justice will be seen in the willingness of Anglican school communities to offer themselves to serve God and His people in the wider community as critical participants.
Commitment to tradition and dignity within school life
Anglican schools will use the richness of symbol, story and ceremony to promote their values and order their lives.
Commitment to tradition and dignity within school worship
The Anglican tradition of renewing ancient forms and sacraments to meet modern needs will be evident in the way the school community worships.
