Redeemer Lutheran College values integrity, excellence, service, care and self-discipline as important pillars of its education journey in partnering with families and friends of the College.
Integrity means we do the right thing and make the right choices, even when no one is watching. When we practise integrity, there is no difference between our behaviour and what we know to be right.
Titus 2:7 - In everything set them an example by doing what is good. In your teaching, show integrity, seriousness and soundness of speech that cannot be condemned, so that those who oppose you may be ashamed because they have nothing bad to say about us.
Excellence means we give our best to everything we do. When we practise excellence, we are not trying to be better than anyone else; we are simply striving to be the best we can be.
Philippians 4:8 - Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable – if anything is excellent or praiseworthy – think about such things.
Service means we look for ways to anticipate and meet other peoples’ needs without needing to be asked. When we practise service, we make a difference to the lives of others without selfish motivation.
1 Peter 4:10 - Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms.
Care means we treat people with the love, respect and concern they deserve as an image-bearer of God. When we practise care, we value the whole person, and show that the person really matters to us and our community.
Philippians 2:1 - Your life in Christ makes you strong, and his love comforts you. You have fellowship with the Spirit, and you have kindness and compassion for one another.
Self-discipline means we manage our own behaviour so that others don’t have to. When we practise self-discipline, we take charge of ourselves and make positive choices about how we will respond in any circumstance.
2 Peter 1:5-6 – For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, love.Mission Statement Vision for Learning
