  • Resilience whatever it takes, we don’t give up
  • Integrity we show character: respect, honesty, kindness
  • Vision seeing ourselves as part of something bigger, a belief that our life has meaning and value. Asking the question where am I heading and what difference do I want to make
  • Excellence we aim for excellence in everything we do no excuses!
