Making Connections GROWTH
Growth – ‘The Spirit of Character’
A St Andrews Education is an education that focuses on developing the whole child -academically, culturally, physically, socially, emotionally and spiritually. Our task is to develop learners, to foster growth, and to form character. At St Andrews we strive to intentionally develop young men and women who are caring, compassionate, ethical, moral, resilient, courageous, disciplined and respectful. It is a school that encourages its young people to value participation in a broad range of activities across an array of human endeavours, and in doing so helps them to discover who and whose they are, so that they may find meaning and purpose in their lives. The formation of character, then, at St Andrews is a part of every child’s experience so that they learn ‘to act justly, and to love kindness and to walk humbly with their God’.
Luke 2:40 ‘And the child increased in wisdom and in stature and in favour with God and man’.
