Offering Spiritual Growth and Christian-Values – St Lawrence College Christian ethos plays a vital role in providing students with more than just an excellent education. We have created an environment that supports spiritual growth, instils values, and cultivates a strong sense of community rooted in Christian principles. The Christian values at our College promotes spiritual development, nurtures kindness, and cultivates a sense of belonging and unity among students.
Spiritual Growth: Nurturing Faith and Reflection
We recognise the importance of spiritual growth in students’ lives, which is why we offer opportunities for students to explore and deepen their faith, regardless of their religious background. At St. Lawrence College, students have access to chapel services, regular religious meetings, and opportunities for prayer and reflection.
The Christian ethos at St. Lawrence College encourages our students to develop a personal relationship with their faith, having a deeper understanding of Christian values such as love, compassion, forgiveness, and prayer. This emphasis on spiritual growth enables students to develop a strong moral compass and a deeper sense of purpose, guiding their actions and decisions both during their time at school and beyond.
Values-Based Education: Instilling Ethical Principles
We provide a values-based education that places a strong emphasis on ethical principles and moral character. The aim is to instil in students a sense of integrity, respect, and responsibility that goes beyond academic achievements.
Through the integration of Christian values into the curriculum and everyday life, St. Lawrence College encourages students to embody virtues such as honesty, empathy, and justice. The school’s commitment to modelling and teaching these values helps students develop a strong ethical foundation that influences their actions and interactions with others.
Community and Belonging: Unity in Faith
One of the significant benefits of our Christian values is the sense of community that we have at St. Lawrence College, for example, we provide a supportive and inclusive environment where students, teachers, mentors and families can connect and develop lasting relationships based on shared faith and values.
We encourage unity in faith among our students, with regular collective worship and participation in religious events. This creates an opportunity for students to come together, share experiences, and support one another. The community of faith also helps students navigate the challenges of boarding school life and offers them a strong support network.
Service and Outreach: Putting Faith into Action
Christian schools, like ours also, inspires students to put their faith into action through service and outreach initiatives. We believe in the importance of serving others and making a positive impact in the wider community.
St. Lawrence College provides opportunities for students to engage in community service projects, charitable fundraising, and volunteering. We believe these experiences allow our students to develop empathy, compassion, and a sense of responsibility towards others. By actively engaging in service, students learn to apply their Christian values to real-world situations, creating a lasting impact and a lifelong commitment to giving back.
St. Lawrence College, objective is to provide more than just an exceptional education. We offer our students opportunities for spiritual reflection, a sense of belonging, support, guidance and engagement in service and outreach. Our goal is to prepare students to become compassionate and responsible individuals who positively impact the world around them. The Christian values at our school are there to serve as a guiding light, shaping students’ character and providing a foundation for development as they grow into adults.
