Our Christian Vision
Our Christian Vision: 'Together We Grow: Together We Give'
At Wimborne St Giles we want to create a school that stands out, in which everybody THRIVES, which is firmly rooted in its Christian VALUES of Love, Hope and Joy and which branches out to serve its COMMUNITY.
As a church school, our Vision is deeply Christian and underpinned by this verse from the Bible:
“And on the banks, on both sides of the river, there will grow all kinds of trees for food. Their leaves will not wither, nor their fruit fail, but they will bear fresh fruit every month, because the water for them flows from the sanctuary. Their fruit will be for food, and their leaves for healing.” Ezekiel 47:12
We want every child to flourish and to fulfill their potential. We teach children that no two leaves are the same - and neither are they! Throughout their time with us, we instill the sense in them that they are unique, they are special and they are loved.
The visual representation of our vision is a tree with the children as leaves reaching out. We want our children to flourish and be empowered to change the world. Throughout their time with us, children are given regular opportunities to serve their local, national and global community and 'be the change' they want to see in the world.
We regularly explore this idea from St Augustine:
"We flourish, not for our own sake, but so we can look outwards and give."
