It also acknowledges the role of parents as the first educators of their children and the central role of teachers in the learning process. It emphasises the strong mutual respect between parents and teachers that is essential for our students' successful development. The college strives for a socially just program that supports students from all backgrounds and that encourages cooperation and teamwork. Individual input is also valued. The college is committed to continuing to provide a strong foundation for students' intellectual, physical, social, moral, spiritual and aesthetic development. By providing a supportive and nurturing environment, we contribute to the development of students' self worth, enthusiasm for learning and optimism for the future.
