A specific Marist ethos has evolved and been codified in the light of the life and philosophy of the Marist Founder, St Marcellin Champagnat:
Spending time with youngsters provides opportunities to enter their lives, build up relationships and understand them better
Being child-like as in the spirit of the Gospel means avoiding duplicity, pretence and empty show. Relationships are open and honest.
There is a place for everyone. A sense of belonging is fostered. A sound family does not neglect moral authority and expectations.
Love of Work
Marcellin’s practical lifestyle moved others to work hard and to respect all kinds of labour. He balanced work with prayer and life in community.
Mary was a prayerful woman of faith, obedient and grateful to God. She was concerned for others and stood by those who suffered.
Promoting an absolutely honest attitude in all we do and say.
