Our Commitment to our Parents and Wider Community
At St Mark’s, ‘koinonia’ - the biblical value of community and joint participation - is at the heart of our vision. As members of one body (Romans 12), each individual is needed and valued to achieve ‘transformation for all’. We prioritise partnerships and engagement with our parents and carers as the first educators of their children, extending to our local community and organisations regionally, nationally and globally. Through our partnerships, we are committed to providing our young people with aspirational opportunities. They will affirm their unique place in society and this will be celebrated unapologetically. They will be positive agents of change. They will have an adept knowledge of local and global issues. They will thrive in turning our values into inspirational action. And they will, above all, understand their God-given roles and responsibilities as stewards and courageous advocates for their community and the world in which they live.
