- to have self-respect, self-esteem and a pride in their personal appearance;
- to be able to communicate co-operatively and effectively with each other – child to child, child to adult;
- to develop the skill of self discipline;
- to feel happy and secure in the school environment;
- to appreciate their local environment;
- to be courteous to each other.
For each child to fulfil their potential by:
- developing alert and agile minds, a sense of curiosity and an enjoyment of learning;
- aiming for and recognising high personal achievement;
- cultivating qualities of creativity, sensitivity and imagination;
- realising that learning can be fun.
