Our Vision and Values

The Essendon Way - Our Vision

Encouraging everyone’s light to shine (Matthew 5:16)

Essendon School strives to be a tolerant, caring and inclusive Christian community which values each individual and encourages their light to shine in spirit, mind and body.

The Essendon Way - Our Bible Text

“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven."

Matthew Chapter 5 vs 14-16


The Essendon Way - Our Values

As part of our Vision for Essendon, we teach six key values; focusing on one each half term. Based upon the Christian value of love, the Essendon Values are:


  • Love yourself

  • Love others

  • Love God

  • Love learning

  • Love the world you live in


These Essendon values underpin everything we do and teach as a school, helping to develop our children as both individuals as well as members of a wider global community
