St Martins Spirit

St Martins Lutheran College provides a positive learning environment in a vibrant community. We are a caring Christian school and our community embraces the following values:

 

Respect

We treat everyone with fairness and offer acceptance to all with genuine concern for the rights and well-being of the community

Do nothing from rivalry or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Philippians 2:3

Faith

We share the love and grace of God with everyone in everything we do. Our community is nurtured spiritually to create an awareness of the strength we have in Christ.

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13

Compassion

The St Martins community demonstrates kindness and service to others. We are open and responsive to the needs of others, reaching out and actively caring for those in need.

Be kind to one another, tender hearted, forgiving one another as God in Christ forgave you. Ephesians 4:32

Growth

We value development in learning and wisdom by encouraging students and staff to be curious and inquisitive about the world around them, motivating them to build on their strengths.

Let the message about Christ completely fill your lives, while you use all you wisdom to teach and instruct each other. Colossians 3:16a

Encouragement

We are guided to be our best and to look for the best in others.

I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. Psalm 139:14

Hope

We are inspired to view the world with optimism. We treat challenges as opportunities to build resilience. Our aim is to build a positive mindset that is open to learning. Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.

They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:31
