At The Grange, we expect all adults and students to model and develop a set of personal goals that governs how we respect, socialise and communicate with one another in the community and with others outside our community.
We believe every one of us at The Grange has the responsibility to exercise self-discipline and respect towards ourself, others and our environment.
We exercise self-discipline by being mindful of how our attitudes, words, actions and body language can affect ourselves and people around us. We maintain a growth mindset that mistakes are inevitable but we can learn from these challenges and opportunities. We know that even the best written rules and regulations cannot replace the important skills of self-discipline. When the students are young, we expect the adults to provide guidance and intervention but the ultimate goal should be students knowing what’s right and wrong.
With a diverse demographic of nationalities and cultures that are already in the school, we cannot over emphasise the importance of showing respect. We gain the respect of others by respecting ourselves; we show respect for others as we seek to understand similarities and difference in our ways of lives, beliefs and perspectives; we respect not just humans but also living things with whom we share this planet; and we develop a genuine respect and love of our man-made and natural environment to prevent any damage to it before even thinking about actions to save it.
