At St Andrew’s College we believe that all people are created in the image of God and therefore should be treated with dignity and respect and we are duty bound to be inclusive and mindful of diversity in all our policies, programmes, classrooms, and interactions.
We, therefore, affirm all people regardless of their race, colour, age, belief, religion, conscience, culture, language, nationality, disability, ethnic or social origin, birth, sex, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, marital status, pregnancy, and socioeconomic status.
On this Human Rights Day, our school re-commits itself to promoting all fundamental rights and freedoms of every person in our country and in the rest of the world. We recognise that our actions are instrumental in protecting the rights of others and that every human right we claim for ourselves comes with a responsibility towards others.
As we find ourselves in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is crucial that all our actions and decisions are mindful of our loved ones as well as people we don’t know – near or far. Stay safe. Keep others safe. Wash your hands, keep your social distance and care for those who need help.
“Don’t think about changing your behaviour so you won’t get it, think about changing your behaviour so you don’t give it to somebody else.” – Graham Medley
