Our School Virtues
Catholic schools within the Archdiocese of Cardiff ensure that as part of their Catholic teachings from Learning and Growing as the People of God, Virtues are a key focus. These virtues show how pupils are growing in their faith, as well as how schools help children to grow. Every half term there is a different focus.
These virtues are taken from the Jesuit Institute which is rooted in the teachings of St Ignatius. They have created a Pupil Profile in which 8 pairs of complementary words have been placed together. The Archdiocese of Cardiff have been allowed to use the Jesuit material and have renamed it the Catholic Schools Profile.
Each half term the whole school will focus on one pair of words; we will spend time reflecting on the meaning of the words; how we see these virtues in action in our lives and in the lives of others and how we can work to encapsulate these virtues in our lives.
Work on the meaning of the words is carried out in class and in assemblies. The work of the children is celebrated on our Virtue Tree in our school. Please take a look at the Virtues signs around our school. These were designed by our pupils.
