Lea​rning Vision Tree​


This Learning Vision was officially​ launched midway through 2013, utilising the 'Tree' symbol and the focus words; 'Learning, Teaching, Being', together with the motto - "Side by side, we are brave emp​​owered and spirited learners".  This launch was accompanied by the creation of a school book entitled, 'The Rainbow Tree', written by our STIE, Mrs Tracey Parkinson.​ 



Th​e cross is central and represents our Christian belief – our Faith.

Our school emblem the rainbow represents:

  • The seven gifts of the Spirit - Wisdom, Knowledge, Courage, Understanding, Reverence, Right Judgement, Awe
  • The sev​en Sacraments - Baptism, Confirmation, Penance, Eucharist, Marriage, Holy Orders, Anointing of the Sick.
  • The sign of a new beginning - "where people are encouraged to learn from their mistakes." (taken from our Mission Statement)
