Springwest develops virtuous behaviour 

Mr Hearn proudly shared our new Virtues badges to further support our Character Education. Students who have demonstrated Intellectual, Performance, Moral and Civic virtues will wear their badges with pride as they continue their journey towards practical wisdom.

‘Virtue makes us aim at the right end, and practical wisdom makes us take the right means’ - Aristotle

Each term we will award Virtues badges for those students who have received 50 points (bronze) 150 (silver) and 300 points (gold). At Springwest we believe everyone deserves a great education and have worked hard to create an environment where virtues are taught, caught and sought. We now have 91 students who have developed their character and have received bronze awards. We can’t wait to see so many more receive and wear their badges with pride.

Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education - Martin Luther King Jr.
