Culture is Key!

We had a brilliant evening at the High School Expo last Monday, which was easily the biggest crowd we have had at an enrolment event! Part of the challenge for any organisation is maintaining culture through growth periods. As we look to another year of growth in certain grades, providing opportunities for potential enrolments to experience the culture of PCS has never been more important.

The culture we have built at PCS and continue to refine is something that we hold as pivotal as we move forward. The High School Expo is a vital first step in that process. What better way to get a feel for the culture of a school than to spend a few hours interacting with its students, parents and teachers in an informal setting. Anything can be said in a brochure or from a platform, however parents talking to parents is where the rubber really hits the road!

So what culture are we building at PCS? To put it simply, we strive to create an environment where our students want to be at school. Our school is a place where each student is accepted, challenged, encouraged and belongs; a place where students feel safe and secure. We want our school to be fun! Our staff strive to be a source of consistency in our students lives, where no matter what is going on at home or at school, students are always greeted with a smile and treated with dignity and respect. We believe that each student is made by God unique and for a purpose. We believe that God has placed in each of us abilities and gifts that He wants us to develop and use. Our job as a school is to effectively partner with families to help raise young men and women who are secure in who they are, trained, equipped and ready to go and make a positive difference in the world whatever that may be.

As a school we aren’t always perfect in these areas, however we will always strive to get better and better and better! If that sounds like the sort of culture you want to help build and be a part of, then let’s discuss how we might be able to partner with you through an enrolment at PCS.

As we have said on many occasions, we are not striving to be a big school, only a healthy school. As we approach each new day at PCS, rest assured that maintaining the positive culture that has been built over many years, will continue to stay a top priority. Culture is key, and we are so glad that you are a part of that.

Have a great week everyone.
