Vision, Values and Virtues

As a school, we passionately believe in developing and nurturing our students to be well rounded, responsible and dynamic Catholic citizens both now and in the future.

We ensure there are many opportunities for pupils to develop a wide variety of characteristics and values to help equip them to be active citizens in the Coloma community as well as in the wider world.

Our school mottos is Laborare est Orare which translates from Latin as “to work is to pray”. Christ is at the heart of all things at Coloma and pupils are encouraged to offer all of their work and daily efforts to the greater glory of God.

The mantra that we live our daily lives by is “Work Hard & Be Kind”. All members of the community demonstrate kindness through small daily acts as well as larger planned activities throughout the academic year. Hard work and being the very best versions of ourselves ensures that we experience success and create a community of safety and happiness.

In 2023-2024, we are understanding and developing the following virtues through form time and whole school activities:

  • Faith
  • Excellence
  • Enthusiasm
  • Love and Friendship
  • Kindness and Compassion
  • Justice
  • Self-discipline
