“Values are the ideals that give significance to our lives, that are reflected through the priorities we choose, and that we act on consistently and repeatedly.”
Hall, Brian. 1994. Values Shift: A Guide to Personal and Organisation Transformation. Rockport. MA.
For something to be of value, it must be chosen from amongst alternatives and prized by its owners.
Our values have been chosen from amongst others; they are, therefore, prized and are acted upon and modelled by
members of our community.
The Knox School values, if demonstrated in day-to-day school life, will model our values for others in our community, be they friends, colleagues, students, staff and parents. Successful modelling of the values will ultimately have a direct impact on others, especially those younger, their feelings and consequent behaviours. It is expected that members of our community will do their best to implement the desired modelling of the values within the total life of the School. We need to be the evolving learners we are trying to inspire our children/students to become.
