School Aims

Everything is possible for one who believes’ Mark 9:23

 

Through our Christian values of hope, respect and courage we strive to do the best with the gifts God gave us to make the world a better place.

At St George’s we instill hope for a better future. We will be motivated to learn, and capable of working independently and with others. We will respect ourselves, others and the environment. We will be courageous in making responsible and appropriate choices and make a positive contribution to society.
