Visions and Values
'Authentic values are those by which a life can be lived, which can form a people that produces great deeds and thoughts.' Allan Bloom
A value is a principle that guides our thinking and our behaviour.
At SFH, every individual is valued for who they are and what they contribute to the school.
Values are intended to support the personal, social and spiritual development of every pupil throughout the school.
Our values are those which we consider important within the school community and which will be important throughout life.
We promote our shared values and recognise where others are ‘living the values’. These values guide us in how we behave and respond to situations every day. They help us build positive and improving relationships, which in turn help our school to be a better place for us all to
‘Learn, Achieve, Succeed’.
Value of the Month
Are you taking advantage of your opportunities? Opportunities can come in the form of trying a new challenge in your lessons, meeting someone new, or taking a risk. Sometimes we overlook these opportunities because they require us to step out of our comfort zone, to be a bit brave and have courage. But if we want to grow and succeed, taking any opportunity that comes our way is key. Opportunities allow you to grow and learn, allowing you to learn something new. Taking opportunities can help you achieve your goals faster. Change, like the start of a new school year, can bring new opportunities, such as moving to a new class with a new teacher.
Opportunity can lead you to meeting new people and finding new things that interest and excite you and help build you into the person you want to be. Taking opportunities means taking chances, but if we want success then taking these risks can help us become the best versions of ourselves.
Sometimes taking an opportunity in life is scary, but it's necessary for our growth as individuals. If we never take this chance then how will we ever know what we are capable of?
So go for it, take the opportunity today to be creative, to solve a problem, to make a new friend, to try something new.
