Values and Virtues
Throughout the school year at St. Anne's, we focus on Values and Virtues statements and consider how we can live better lives by thinking of these. The focus of the first half term 2021-22 will be ELOQUENT AND TRUTHFUL. Please use the Padlets link below to see how children across the school are going to strive to be 'Eloquent' and 'Truthful' this half term.
This half term's Value and Virtue is: Eloquent and Truthful
Eloquent: the ability to speak or write fluently, persuasively and appropriately. We are eloquent when we use language to express our ideas or opinions clearly and with conviction. When we choose our words, we should do so carefully so they are kind and compassionate, and don’t hurt others. Eloquence isn’t limited to speaking and writing. We can express ourselves in other ways like music, drama, painting or dance. We should use our creative gifts to say things in a way that is interesting, truthful, memorable and faithful.
Truthful: God wants us to be truthful in all we do. Jesus said, ‘I am the way, the truth and the life’, so being honest and truthful means we are following in his footsteps and living life the way God wants us to. Being truthful is being faithful to ourselves and to Jesus. We should stand up for the truth.
