At St. John Bosco P.S. we aim to foster the following attitudes and dispositions in our pupils:
Their natural curiosity will be nurtured. They will acquire the skills necessary to conduct purposeful, constructive research. They will actively enjoy learning and this love of learning will be sustained throughout their lives.
They will exercise initiative in applying thinking skills critically and creatively to make sound decisions and solve complex problems.
They will receive and express ideas and information confidently, including the language of mathematical symbols.
They will be encouraged to approach unfamiliar situations without anxiety and have the confidence and independence of spirit to explore new roles, ideas and strategies. They will be courageous and articulate in defending those things in which they believe.
They will spend time in our school exploring themes which have global relevance and importance. In so doing, they will acquire a critical mass of significant knowledge.
They will have a sound grasp of the principles of moral reasoning. They will have integrity, honesty and a sense of fairness and justice
They will be encouraged to show sensitivity towards the needs and feelings of others helping them to have a sense of personal commitment to kindness.
They will be asked to respect the views, values and traditions of other individuals and cultures and will have opportunities to seek and consider a range of points of view.
They will understand the importance of physical and mental balance and personal well being. The Walk Tall programme will facilitate this.
They will be able to think about and consider their own learning and analyse their personal strengths and weaknesses in a constructive manner.
