Catholic Life

Jesuit Virtues

 

As Catholics we desire to follow the teachings of the Gospel revealed through the Church. In the Gospels and our tradition we find the person of Jesus, through his teachings and interactions with people, showing us the way to live our lives. The Beatitudes (Matthew 5) encapsulate the values we want to live by and that we want to nurture and develop in our children:

We have a whole school focus on a pair of virtues every half term. Children receive weekly Star of the Week awards based on the virtues. The end of year Presentation assembly is a celebration of children's achievements based on the virtues.
