a principal s experience
A Principal’s Experience

“While there are some that are supportive, resourceful, helpful and willing to join me in ministry, there are others who simply could not care less. There appears to be a stereotype in terms of pastoral support. I believe I have experienced both kinds of pastors: supportive and non-supportive ones. Therefore, I believe and have experienced that the stereotypes are accurate and true.”

non pastoral support
Non Pastoral Support
  • Uncaring and indifferent
  • Not engaged in the school

collaborative charge
Collaborative Charge:

He who co-operates with the divine purpose in imparting to the youth a knowledge of God, and molding the character into harmony with His, does a high and noble work. As he awakens a desire to reach God's ideal, he presents an education that is as high as heaven and as broad as the universe; an education that cannot be completed in this life, but that will be continued in the life to come; an education that secures to the successful student his passport from the preparatory school of earth to the higher grade, the school above (Education, pg.19).
