RELATIONSHIPS We seek to grow strong and healthy relationships amongst students, teachers and families. Positive relationships lay a firm foundation for learning. The approach intentionally aims to create an environment that fosters positive self-esteem, a sense of self-worth and respect.
PRIMARY VALUES Establishing shared values enables a culture of mutual respect and provides a safe and supportive environment. Our School Values: Respect for God; Respect for self and others; and Respect for God’s creation underpin how we relate within the school culture.
A NETWORK OF SUPPORT Student Care is a priority with a professional team approach to nurturing the whole child and providing support for each student. Critical to the support is partnering with parents and ensuring open communication.
CHRISTIANITY IN ACTION An important part of life at RVS is learning about the Christian faith in a way that is authentic and personal. Bible stories, discussions and activities present Christian life and values to students in a relevant context. Weekly assemblies provide opportunities to gather as a community and make meaningful connections between faith and learning in Primary, Middle and Senior schools.
