Wellbeing at St Agnes’

St Agnes' is a school which strives to empower individuals with the skills, knowledge, values and attitudes that will enable them to successfully belong, and participate in society. Inherent in this quest is the development of a school climate that promotes the development of 3R’s in students:

Respect

Our students are encouraged to have consideration for the feelings of others. They
are expected to treat others fairly and to expect respect in return. We believe that
students become respectful when treated with respect.

Responsibility

Accepting one’s accountability, not blaming others, becoming reliable and
trustworthy and seeing themselves as a primary cause of their own decisions and
actions.
