Values & Virtues
Virtues and Values
At St. Joseph’s
The values and virtues are taken from the Jesuit Institute which is rooted in the teachings of St. Ignatius. They have created a Pupil Profile in which eight complementary words have been placed together.
Each half term, we are focusing on a different pair of words and thinking about how we can grow more like Jesus in our daily lives.
