Catholic schools educate people, first and foremost, through the living context, i.e. the climate that both students and teachers establish in the environment where teaching and learning activities take place. This climate is pervaded not only by the values that are lived out, by the quality of interpersonal relations between teachers and students amongst each other, by the care staff devote to student and local community needs but by the clear living testimony provided by teachers and all staff.
At Cardinal Wiseman Catholic School we strive to provide our students with a ‘Compass for Life’. The ‘points’ of this compass are four values that once integrated and balanced, provide our students with the means to navigate their way whilst with us and later during the rest of their lives. The four values are Knowledge, Ambition, Respect, and Resilience and are held in position by our faith at the centre of the compass.
