We are concerned with the development of the whole personality of each individual. We aim to teach what each child needs, regardless of age, sex or ability. We try to make it difficult to fail. We endeavor to present the child with work which is attractive. We try to create incentives, to increase the natural thirst for knowledge and skills that is present in almost all children, and to channel efforts into useful and interesting pursuits. We want children to enjoy school and to make the best use of their time here.

 

We do not forget that we are part of a process, and we want our children to go on to the next stage of their education with a built-in desire for further interesting work and experience.

 

Values and precepts

 

We want our pupils to achieve their full potential and to become responsible members of the community by embracing, with us all, the following precepts:

 

• to tell the truth

• to keep promises

• to respect the rights and property of others

• to act considerately towards all living things

• to help those who are weaker and less fortunate and than ourselves

The values underlying these precepts are reflected also in the school rules:

 

• to be polite towards adults and towards other pupils

• to try our best in everything we do

• to respect and care for other people and their property

• to be proud of our school and to take care of it

• to be honest and truthful.
