During our chapel session, we looked at our mission statement and how we can embody it and work to achieve it in our day to day lives. We also discussed how the college mission statement can be lived out through The De Lisle way. The De Lisle way refers to six virtues that we are encouraged to live by to reflect our Catholic ethos. They are things such as making a difference, respecting our community and being a positive role model. Every student has a card to keep in their blazer pocket to get signed whenever a member of staff witnesses a student carrying out one of these virtues.
We discussed how we could be a positive role model by asking and answering questions in class. We talked about how we can show prayerfulness in class or during Acts of Worship. Both of these things are a part of our mission statement where we state that we are ‘we are together in faith’ and ‘inspired to achieve’. It gave us all a chance to think about how we can embody our college Mission statement and The De lisle Way at the same time.
