Mission, Vision, Values

Our Mission

To instil in each individual the ability and responsibility to make the world greater, better and more beautiful than they discovered it.

Our Vision

To develop innovative, courageous and compassionate global citizens who take action, true to Quaker values.

Our Values

Community is gathering interconnected individuals whose collective actions create a sense of belonging and encourage participation, who accept and take care of one another.

Compassion is being sensitive to others' thoughts and feelings and understanding and considering conflicting issues and ideas. It is to show concern and caring for all others in the community, no matter their differences, in a way that creates harmony and peace.

Integrity is the courage to act honestly and truthfully in all actions.

Respect is valuing yourself and others and the environment in which we exist, based on the principles of simplicity and equality, so that you treat others as you wish to be treated.

Responsibility is being accountable for one's own actions and behaviours by demonstrating good judgement and fulfilling obligations.
