Where over 120 years of history embrace the future …
At St Patrick’s CBC we aspire to create a CULTURE OF INNOVATION that allows each pupil to develop and grow as a:
Is someone who embraces the notion of doing this that have never been done before, creating environments in which employees are given tools and resources to challenge the status quo and achieve growth.
Is the intellectually disciplined process of actively and skillfully conceptualising, applying, and evaluating information as a guide to belief and action. We need to equip pupils with the ability to effectively communicate and solve problems and have commitment to overcome our native egocentrism and sociocentrism.
Creativity is the process of applying imagination to have original ideas that have value. creative thinking encourages pupils to find solutions to problems without falling back on standard, accepted methods. shaping an environment where creativity can flourish will make education without boundaries possible.
Who encourages during a crisis, recovers from setbacks, adapts well to change and provides decisive direction when facing adversity. we must assist pupils in developing into leaders who are able to bounce back from each set back and use the opportunity to leap forward. The culture at St Patrick’s must develop levelheaded leaders who are able to celebrate their successes and learn from their failures, while building strong networks.
Is a child who, through exposure to carefully managed risks, is able to mastery and a sense of accomplishment which encourages them to face new challenges. Pupils need to take risks in order to explore their limits and reach their potential. Exposure to carefully managed risks, pupils build self-confidence, resilience, and self-belief. Thoughtful risk taking better prepares pupils for life beyond schooling.
Has the willingness and ability to learn new competencies in order to perform under first-time, tough or different conditions. Through the culture at St Patrick’s CBC, pupils must be allowed to develop a sense of curiosity and ability to effectively manage the discomfort of change and be tolerant of ambiguity, intellectually curious and emotionally intelligent.
Culture of innovation
Culture is intangible, but it’s essential: you can walk into a school and know immediately whether you want to be there or not. The same thing goes for the pupils, and the staff.
But just because culture is intangible doesn’t mean that it’s indefinable. A positive school culture encourages greater effort and productivity, improves collegial collaboration, supports successful change and improvement efforts, builds commitment and identification of pupils and teachers with your school, and amplifies energy and motivation of staff members and pupils.
We have created an environment in which our diverse talents are allowed to flourish.
