Our Values
The school’s six core values of spirit, faith, integrity, courage, respect and passion are embedded in every endeavour that the students undertake.

Spirit: A St Margaret’s girl will value and demonstrate an enthusiasm for the school, our heritage and our environment. The St Margaret’s spirit is in all students and is there for life. It is a thread which connects St Margaret’s girls with each other.

Faith: A St Margaret’s girl welcomes and embraces all in sharing the Christian message, the spirit of love through example, compassion, hope and charity. She demonstrates her faith by service to those members of the wider community who need assistance.

Integrity: A St Margaret’s girl is known for her honesty, trustworthiness, loyalty, courtesy, understanding, reliability and ethical behaviour.

Courage: A St Margaret’s girl has strength of character and confidence in doing what is right. She has the courage to embrace challenge and change.

Respect: A St Margaret’s girl has respect for herself and others. She understands that she is a member of a diverse community and she takes responsibility as a team member to care, support and cooperate with others.

Passion: A St Margaret’s girl has a positive outlook on life. She understands that commitment and persistence are necessary for learning and achievement.

The Anglican faith underpins all that we do at St Margaret’s and is enacted daily by each member of the St Margaret’s community as we interact with each other.

There’s a way in which we strive to do things at St Margaret’s; a way in which we seek to treat people throughout our community; and a way in which we aim to serve others. Underpinned by our school values, St Margaret’s has developed a document which expresses the St Margaret’s Way.
