It was lovely to see everyone back together for the start of Term 3. At our whole School Assembly yesterday, I shared with the girls our updated School Values Statement. This statement has been developed with input from students and staff in a process overseen by the School Executive and the School Council. I hope you will agree that these updated statements are reflected in our daily work at Lowther Hall and summarise the things that we believe are important.

We value: 

  • Learning for all members of our community and especially for young women 
  • Respectful relationships which give rise to everyone having a voice 
  • Living the School motto, non nobis solum, through a proactive demonstration of social responsibility 
  • Inclusivity, diversity and acceptance of difference within our girls’ school context 
  • A physically, emotionally and socially safe environment which fosters health and wellbeing 
  • Individuals working together for a common good 
  • The pursuit of excellence through effort 
  • A broad curriculum which promotes the recognition of diverse interests and strengths 
  • Local, national and global engagement 
  • Leadership that aligns with our School values and the development of such leadership in students and staff 
  • A physical environment which is sustainable and has both aesthetic and functional value 
  • An orientation towards the future which embraces our Anglican context, our traditions and our past
