Virtues


As a catholic school we have Jesus at the forefront of everything we do.

The Gospel Values are embedded into our daily life and call us to be people of compassion and excellence. We have chosen 7 virtues which exemplify the christian life:

St Matthew’s Key Virtues
Love – Love of God, self and others
Self discipline – Learning to make the ‘right decisions’
Unity – living, learning, serving in a community
Justice – treat people as we would want to be treated
Respect – be respectful of others, our school and the wider community
Excellence – do our personal best in everything we do
Joyfulness – finding fun in work and play

These virtues are key capabilities for living and lifelong learning and are found in the NZ Curriculum as Key Competencies. We see St Matthew’s as a catholic, quality learning community taking a holistic approach in partnership with parents, parish and the wider community. We are aiming for excellence in all that we do.
