Virtues Education

Jesuit Catholic Pupil Profile

Here at St Anthony’s we know and teach the importance of developing and living a virtuous life. The Catechism describes a virtue as “an interior disposition, a positive habit, a passion that has been placed at the service of the good.” Each term we visit a pair of virtues, in line with Diocese expectations. We introduce these through Gospel assemblies, recognise them in Reward Assemblies and link them to our teaching in RE.


Pupil views:


“The virtues help us grow in faith – like a tree.”

“We are like the trunk. As we add the virtues we become closer to God.”

“It has taught me how to get steps closer to heaven.”

‘Each virtue is a step to God; when you take one, you grow bigger in faith .’
