Value of the Term

At St Helen’s, we focus on a value each term as a school community together. Over a two year period therefore we work through a number of important values, based on the Christian faith, but accessible to everyone.

Our value for Term 3 is ‘taking responsibility‘.

The bible teaches us that life is a gift from God and it is our responsibility to use our talents and abilities in the best way that we can.

Some questions to get you thinking….

  • What are your special talents?
  • How do you use them to help others?
  • What are the teachers responsible for at school?
  • What are you responsible for at school?
  • How can you take more responsibility for your learning?
  • What are you responsible for at home?


Over the course of the term, will focus on the following themes:

Week 1: Taking responsibility for what we say

Week 2: Taking responsibility for our time

Week 3: Taking responsibility for managing our anger

Week 4: Using our gifts responsibly

Week 5: Taking responsibility for our family members

Week 6: Taking responsibility for our environment


Activities for families to do at home:

We hope that your family will find these ideas and activities helpful as you explore the value together.
