CHRISTIAN VISION AND VALUES
AVA CHRISTIAN CHARACTER STATEMENT
Our aim is to serve the common good by enabling the children, young people, and our wider AVA community to flourish through their experience of education and the opportunities we create. We strive to provide an education which prepares students with the best possible chances for their future, supporting them to discover their role in society, empowering them to make constructive life choices and enabling them to make a meaningful contribution in society.
As a community we have a Christian character that guides and influence us. Our ethos is rooted in a keen sense of moral purpose that exists to make outcomes better for the families we serve. Service to all is a critical expression of our Christian character. It is observed in everything we do as a school and is seen in our core values of RESPECT, ASPIRATION and RESILIENCE…
Our core value of RESPECT is underpinned by our belief in the worth of each student...
'God treats everyone the same,' he said.
'He accepts people from every nation. He accepts anyone who has respect for him and does what is right'.
Acts Ch10 v34-35
This compels us to work to enable every student to fulfil their potential so they might ASPIRE to experience a full life...
‘…real and eternal life, more and better life than they ever dreamed of.’
John Ch10 v10.
Finally, we foster student RESILIENCE welcoming the strength of God…
‘I can do all this through him who gives me strength'.
Philippians Ch4 v13. NIV Bible.
…and the encouragement of our community.
‘Let us be concerned for one another,
to help one another to show love and to do good'.
Hebrews Ch10 v24.
