The pace of academic demands will slowly be accelerated, while holistic growth will always be the focus. Our students will gradually be prepared to accept additional challenges. Students will become aware of the need to set goals and have long-term objectives. By the end of the Middle School year, our aim is that all students will gain a well rounded solid foundation and mature through character development and confi dence. As our students transition into young teenagers, our aim will be to build their self-confi dence and encourage them to explore and discover the wider world around them. Empathy and responsibility will be embedded and students will feel good about the choices they make. Students will be motivated to grasp opportunities and develop skills to succeed in a future they will help shape.
