AT Highbury, love is one of the 18 words that make up the Culture of Honour.

“Our Culture of Honour is based on the work of Stephen Covey, and is part of how we teach our Highbury boys to behave in an honourable way towards others, including peers, teachers and visitors, as this underpins every facet of school life.

“The way that love is explained in our senior primary is this: ‘Love is the most powerful force in the universe. It’s not just the mushy stuff you see on TV. We know what love is because of God’s example. Love others, it’s that simple,” said David Burns, head of senior primary.

“This term we have been talking about being bold, and that Highbury boys are bold in love. We create space for boys to love school, love sport, love reading, love robotics, love orchestra … even to love maths.”
