‘You will come to know the truth, and the truth shall set you free’
Truth is a key value for Trinity. We define Truth as openness, integrity and honesty, and we work with students and staff to develop these values. Truth sits at the heart of what we believe, and is reflected in our use of Restorative Practice to develop and manage our relationships (for further information, see the section on ‘love’).
Truth is also a key component of scholarship. We encourage children to become independent, questioning and critical learners, who understand that seeking the truth, no matter how difficult or challenging that truth might be, is a vital component in becoming an informed, aware and active citizen. If we discover and understand what is true, we are sometimes led to act courageously and morally for the good of others.
To us, truth also means being truthful with oneself. We help students to develop their self-awareness and resilience so that they can grow in truth, and seek to make a difference to the lives of those around them.
