Glasshouse Christian College – ‘Our House’: A house or home often represents somewhere that is desirable and for many is far more than just a physical location. Each and every house or home is quite different in structure, both in the way it runs and the way it looks.

During discussions at home, you may have heard our Primary students talking about ‘Our House’ when referring to the way we do things when we are at school and how this may be a little different from the way that they do things in their houses. ‘Our House’ at Glasshouse has five windows representing the College G.R.E.A.T values.

Over the past few weeks in assemblies, we have been discussing the value of Godliness and specifically integrity. We have talked about what it means to be a person of integrity in ‘Our House’.

In ‘Our House’ as we guide children towards becoming people of integrity we encourage them to treat everyone equally and fairly and to act independently of others who may do otherwise. We promote honesty and children taking responsibility for their actions. We challenge our children to speak out when others are treated unfairly and to refuse to participate in actions that may be detrimental to others. In ‘Our House’ we encourage children to admit to and apologise for errors when mistakes are made and to be respectful of each other. Our mantra is ‘What we say is what we do’.

As we partner with you it would be wonderful if this conversation could be continued at home where your children can discuss with you what they are doing in ‘Our House’ to be young people of integrity.
