Fiona believes it is the quality of the human relationships within a school that defines it.

She says: “As teachers and parents we must work together in a Christian context to encourage and challenge our students to pursue excellence in all things within and beyond the classroom. Each individual should be given opportunities to achieve their highest potential in all facets of life – intellectual, spiritual, moral and social. We should work to develop in our students their God-given talents.”
