The school’s ethos is driven, firstly, by it’s vision of an equal and integrated South African society, that starts with children, their parent-carers, and the diverse communities they represent, learning alongside a team of educators, who are committed to high quality, diverse, and affordable education. Secondly – but as equally important – an understanding of a self-giving, social, and unified God, who respects, receives, and makes room for the other.
As image bearers, reflecting God’s likeness in the world, we celebrate, embrace, and seek to acknowledge, understand, and learn from each others’ thoughts, interests and backgrounds. We grow, change, and go further, together.
We see our school – the staff, children and their parent-carers – as ‘agents of change’ who are called to re-imagine, create, and co-construct signs of justice and peace in the teeth of society’s structures (Tennent 2010:479; Bosch 1991:179).
