Values Day


‘Do to others as you would have them do to you.’

 Matthew 7:12

In respecting others, Christians acknowledge that God has created all people in His image, therefore we are unique in his creation and worthy of respect. Having self-respect means being able to celebrate our gifts and talents, looking after ourselves and the bodies that God has given us. We want everyone to respect the views of others, even if we don’t share them.

On values day, the children created pieces of artwork that depict RESPECT for other people. We used ‘hand prayers’ to pray for those people who we respect and value.
