Reflection l.jpg

Reflection

The prime responsibility for creating [a] unique Christian school climate rests with the teachers, as individuals and as a community. The religious dimension of the school climate is expressed through the celebration of Christian values in Word and Sacrament, in individual behavior, in friendly and harmonious interpersonal relationships, and in a ready availability. Through this daily witness, the students will come to appreciate the uniqueness of the environment to which their youth has been entrusted. If it is not present, then there is little left which can make the school Catholic.

(The Religious Dimension of Education in a Catholic School,

S.C. for Catholic Education, 1988, para. 26).
