As a school we are focusing on the use of the Seven Sacred Teachings, also known as the Teachings of the Seven Grandfathers as a set of teachings on healthy human conduct towards others.
These teachings were traditionally used and still to this day are needed in order for communities to grow in a healthy way allow for success for all.
These teachings are intended to facilitate conversation and provide strategies on how to best support all students with a continuous focus on positive character attributes that emphasize high standards, and respect and safety. Allowing the classrooms to be a place where students are ready to learn and teachers are able to teach.

BRAVERY is to face the foe with integrity;
HONESTY also means “righteousness”, be honest first with yourself – in word and action;
