Virtues are essential to flourishing.
Floreat schools foster a set of four virtues:
- Curiosity – an intellectual virtue, that refers to open-mindedness, a desire to inquire, thinking for oneself and a quest to improve and find out more.
- Honesty – a moral virtue, that calls on us to seek and honour the truth both in the world and within our own lives; this also calls for humility and openness to feedback, whatever our status.
- Perseverance – a performance virtue, that enables us to keep striving in the midst of challenges, in the pursuit of long-term goals.
- Service – a civic virtue, meaning a commitment to be kind, to put others first and be enthusiastically helpful.
