our school communityAt the heart of our flourishing school community are joyful relationships between students, teachers and parents.

As lovingly created beings, we are hard-wired with a desire for relationships. Humans thrive when engaged in gracious relationships where we don’t hold wrongdoings against each other but forgive with kindness.

Research indicates that healthy relationships in schools are the foundation for student achievement. They support increased student engagement, motivation and academic results while reducing absenteeism and discipline issues. Further to this, the presence of at least one supportive relationship develops resilience in children. When children share a strong connection with a caring adult, they develop essential coping skills.

We encourage our students to build others up according to their needs thereby experiencing relationships that are overwhelmingly joyful.
