Mission Statement

motto2 web

Our mission statement is central to everything we do at Notre Dame. It is built around the principle of love and was inspired by the following Bible quote

'If you have love for one another, then everyone will know that you're my disciples' (John 13:35).

At Notre Dame we aim to show this unconditional love to everyone involved in school so that we can build a caring community where students, staff, parents and visitors can feel safe, valued and supported. In turn we hope that this love will then spread to our wider community.
Our mission statement outlines the 4 main aims of the school that we try to achieve in various ways. These are:

  1. To promote the Gospel values through liturgical and other curricular experiences.
  2. To build a caring community.
  3. To enable all members of the school community to realise their potential.
  4. To develop links between Schools, the Parish, the Home and the local wider community.

Hallmarks

The Hallmarks of Notre Dame describe the essential characteristics, values and activities of the Notre Dame learning community which emerged in response to the question "What makes our school a Notre Dame school?" By exploring this question, 7 'living statements' were developed to challenge schools to reflect on what they do and judge if they were being faithful to the spirituality and mission of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur. It is our duty as a Notre Dame community to embrace and live out these hallmarks in order to build stronger relationships with each other and with God.
