School Values

A St. Mary’s Pupil is…

We try our best to live out the Gospel values in all that we do. Each half term is centred on one such value. We use resources from The Jesuit Pupil Profile to support our learning and teaching.

 

 Our value this half term is PROPHETIC

 

 

Being prophetic is about being seen to do good and about speaking out for what is right.  Good news is only good news if it is announced. 

 

Being prophetic isn’t about telling the future; it is about living out God’s future for me today.

 

 

"We act as if we were simply dropped down in creation and have to decide how to entertain ourselves until we die. But we were sent into the world by God, just as Jesus was. Once we start living our lives with that conviction, we will soon know what we were sent to do."

Heni Nouwen (1932-66)
Dutch priest, theologian and writer

 

"Every increased possession loads us with a new weariness."

John Ruskin (1819-1900)
English art critic and writer

 

"The Lord gives each of us a vocation, a challenge to discover the talents and abilities we possess and to put them at the service of others"

Pope Francis
