At Crescent School we embrace Respect, Responsibility, Honesty and Compassion as our core values.
Respect encompasses several behaviours. The first is respect for oneself: we take care with our personal appearance and wear the uniform with pride; we respect ourselves and we take care not to let ourselves and our families down with our choices and actions. Respect also extends to our interactions with others: we respect each other’s physical security and dignity. We also respect each other's belongings, surroundings and environment.
Responsibility means that we own what we do. We accept the consequences of our choices and actions with grace.
Thirdly, at Crescent we are honest with each other: we tell the truth.
Our fourth core value, compassion, is what sets us apart. We commit to care. Our empathy distinguishes us. We expect and encourage students to care about their immediate families, about their extended family at the school and to reach out to the broader community. We want them to develop the habit of asking, of themselves, and of others: How can I help?
