Democracy The Rule of Law
Individual Liberty Mutual respect
Tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs
At St Sebastian's the values of faith, compassion, empathy, respect for all, diversity and being proud of who you are underpins all that we do. We actively promote an ethos of tolerance and understanding and use the the Arts as a vehicle to explore diversity and encourage positive attitudes to one another. Our whole school celebrations bring all the children together, building a sense of community and support for one another.
Year 6 General Election
At the beginning of this academic school year, the children from year 6 presented a speech to the school where they needed to explain why they would like to take on the challenge of being head boy or head girl. After their speech there was a general election in which each child voted for who was their favourite. It was a very close contest so it was decided that each term the role will be given to a different person.
The autumn head boy is Henok and deputy head boy is Joshua
The autumn head girl is Muna and deputy head girl is Tunmise.
We are confident that they will represent our school well to visitors and other schools. They will lead by example to be a good role model for younger children.
Throughout school the children are in houses named Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Each week, the children earn house points and the winning team at the end of the term receives a reward. This term it is an afternoon tea. Each house has a captain from year 6 who were also elected. These children will be required to motivate their team to earn points, lead their team during sports day and into school after each playtime. They will also need to be a good role model for younger children.
Our house captains are
Matthew - Casey and Tariro
Mark - Maisy and Glory
Luke - Abigail and Emily
John - Nia and Megan
