Cornerstone Schools

The cornerstone (or foundation stone or setting stone) is the first stone set in the construction of a masonry foundation. All other stones will be set in reference to this stone, thus determining the position of the entire structure.

Ephesians 2:19-22

Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone, in whom the whole building, being fitted together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord, in whom you also are being built together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit

Psalm 118:22-23

The stone which the builders rejected
Has become the chief cornerstone.
This was the LORD’s doing;
It is marvelous in our eyes.

Our vision is ‘Building Futures with Love’

We want to be a group of schools which enable each child and adult to flourish and be the architect of their own future which is rooted in love.

Our vision statement ‘Building Futures with Love’ is theologically rooted from the greatest commandment given by Jesus: ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind and with all your strength’ and ‘Love your neighbour as yourself.’ So, each day we live out these commandments through our values of love, hope, courage and perseverance.  We learn to love ourselves, each other, our community and our world and learn to grow as active, healthy and engaged citizens.

Our schools are built on a foundation of love, understanding and support for all: children, parents, staff and the community. This is deeply rooted in theology as love it the greatest of God’s commandments and is lived out on a daily basis through every decision that is made.

We have chosen love as our cornerstone value because when asked, ‘which is the greatest commandment?’ Jesus answered, ‘love the Lord Your God with all you heart, with all your mind, and love your neighbour as yourself’.

(Matthew 22:36-40)
