Our Values

The values we teach at Annesley Junior School have passed the test of time. Throughout the world, regardless of religious or cultural differences, these values are central to how well we function as individuals and communities.

We all need to take RESPONSIBILITY for our actions and the impact we have on others. We need COMPASSION to empathise with people who live with disadvantage. CIVILITY leads to the cultivation of personal behaviours that benefit the communities in which we live. A concept of JUSTICE teaches us fairness in our dealings and actions. As does RESPECT, which suggests that we can learn from the wisdom and experience of others. INTEGRITY comes from learning the importance of honesty, truthfulness and consistency in our actions. COURAGE gives us the ability to confront the unknown and to resist intimidation or discouragement. RESILIENCE is an ability to cope with setbacks or adversity. GRATITUDE is an ability to appreciate and be thankful for what we have or are given. And finally, HUMILITY teaches us self worth, without the need to openly display it to others.
