Ākonga ExpectationsSubtitle

We will build a safe, purposeful and respectful school community which restores and sustains relationships, promoting personal excellence for all. 

We will accompany ākonga as they grow to be people of competence, compassion, commitment and conscience, ready to 'go and set the world on fire'.

St Ignatius of Loyola


This is a person’s ability to consider the impact of their actions on others and the world around them. When we demonstrate conscience, we cultivate deep reflection and promote appropriate actions.

We will be ākonga who demonstrate Conscience 

in our Learning by:

  • treating others the way I would want to be treated
  • finding the good and choosing to do it
  • developing a personal, faith filled relationship with Jesus

In our Community by:

  • noticing when others need help and responding with love
  • finding God in those around us and the wider world

This is a person’s dedication to personal growth, excellence and the pursuit of the common good. When we demonstrate commitment, we value the dignity of all and are agents of positive change.
