3 Core Values of JIS
Respect - Commitment - Kindness
During 2016 and 2017 members of the JIS staff spent time with all aspects of the school community - staff, students, and parents to bring together what we believe as a community binds us together and also allows us to aspire towards. After many different suggestions it was agreed that our core values are best represented using the 3 words:
RESPECT - COMMITMENT - KINDNESS
Respect for each other, our relationships, our surroundings, the environment, our learning
Commitment to make a difference, to stay resilient and strong through adversity, to persevere in our learning, to develop, to improve, to move forwards
Kindness to all, to the world around us, to help, to support, to offer encouragement, to be open minded, to be fair
These words are used continuously around school to help us develop and improve our learning and community. They exist alongside the I.B. Learner Profile and I.B. student attitudes to compliment and personalise them for our school and its community.
As our core values, they help to define who we are and what we aim to achieve.
