Grateful and Generous
Pupils in our school are growing to be . . .
Grateful for their own gifts, for the gift of other people, and for the blessings of each day; and generous with their gifts, becoming men and women for others.
Our school helps our pupils to grow . . .
By encouraging them to know and be grateful for all their gifts, developing them to the full so that they can be generous in the service of others.
The Christian and Ignatian Roots of the Pupil Profile.
The starting point for Ignatius is always gratitude – an attitude of mind that habitually notices daily blessings and the good things that happen to us, giving our lives meaning and enjoyment, and sometimes pause for thought and a nudge to put things right. The end point of Ignatian spirituality is generosity – the impulse to give and not to count the cost, to serve without reward, to have big hearts and great minds, to be men and women for others.
