At Kavanagh, RESPECT is the recognition, allowance and encouragement of our own, and others', uniqueness, gifts and talents.
1. Respect is not earned. It is given.
2. We Respect ourselves
3. We Respect each other
4. We Respect our World
5. We Respect the rules
In the Gospel stories we hear often of Jesus' respect for others: When he recognises the abilities of those who were rejected by their community; When he trusts people who have made mistakes; When he speaks with people who have been outcast; When he treats all people as equal – all made in the image of God.
