Monthly Spiritual Theme

The school's motto, Seek and Speak Truth and Love, conveys a commitment to the two core values of Truth and Love -- to be regularly open to these values and to live by them. Weekly, each school division gathers for Meeting for Worship. This creates opportunities for silent worship, inward reflection, and/or the sharing of insights. Each month a different spiritual theme is highlighted and incorporated into the curriculum. It often becomes a theme for reflection at Meeting for Worship.
