We know academic performance is important because academic qualifications are the passport to accessing a good university.
We also teach children about basic human values such as honesty, kindness, generosity, courage, freedom, equality and respect.
Learn to celebrate diversity in a spirit of understanding and tolerance and develop a positive regard and awareness of other people.
They are taught the values and responsibilities needed to become active members of the community, something which the modern world is desperate for.
By learning about those of differing social, cultural and religious perspectives, young people build their awareness of the role of faith in their lives and in the lives of others.
