We value the acceptance and fair treatment of all people in our community. Social justice and compassion are highly regarded and actively pursued. We encourage the development of a wide range of curricular and extra-curricular opportunities throughout the school to help facilitate individual talents and interests.
Diversity & Cultural Awareness
The acceptance of different cultures is a pivotal component to the creation of a loving and equitable school environment. A school culture where people embrace diversity in the classroom can positively impact the school community.
When this happens, a school community creates a safe, supportive and purposeful environment for students and staff which, in turn, allows students to grow, academically and socially.
In an increasingly fragmented society, the ability to connect with peers, co-workers and neighbours with diverse backgrounds and abilities is invaluable. Diversity improves critical-thinking skills, builds empathy and encourages students to think differently.
We want our students to have an understanding of and respect for the rights, equality and diversity of all without discrimination. We believe it is important to equip students with the skills, attitudes and behaviours needed to develop mutual understanding and respect, empathy, trust and honesty and acceptance.
We want our students to become confident, fair and responsible individuals who make informed and responsible decisions throughout their lives.
Our values convey the beliefs that positively influence our behaviour and the way we interact with individuals, groups and communities
They represent the deepest beliefs and sentiments to which we can aspire, and they shape our SRS school community.
