St Vincent’s school aims to form people of competence and conscience; people with a Christian vision and value system, who can play a full role in society, who show a concern for their fellow humans and have a deep desire to put their talents to the service of others. Our Code of Behaviour is our support system, helping to ensure that learning and development take place. A positive approach of encouragement and praise underpin our Code of Behaviour. The school endeavours to foster the quality of self-discipline that comes with increasing maturity. The Code of Behaviour is designed to enable our students to realise that they are responsible for their actions. Respect is the core principle at the heart of school life in St Vincent’s. Respect for self, staff, other students and the school environment is key to building a school community where each person feels secure and has a sense of belonging.
