At the heart of the work of the St. Anna Colleg in its two state-recognized private schools is the conviction – rooted in our Judeo-Christian heritage – that every human being is endowed with a unique and singular dignity and is by nature a social being, designed for togetherness. This conviction is the basis and the guiding principle of our day-to-day school life which is aimed at optimizing teaching and learning.
In a relationship of trust, students, teachers, parents and staff members should be able to interact with each other with respect and consideration and in a spirit of candour and openness.
The implementation of these values is facilitated by clear and transparent house and staff regulations, covering, for example, how we deal with each other, order and punctuality, media use and external appearance.
Individual violations of rules and interpersonal conflicts can and do occur at school as they do in other social settings. Like all actions, they have consequences. But they also open up the opportunity to discover something fundamental: objective criticism and honest self-appraisal are prerequisites for all learning. Forgiveness and unconditional new beginnings are possible at any time.
Admission to and attendance at the St. Anna Colleg schools therefore presuppose, irrespective of ideological and religious affiliations, that parents and students affirm this self-image of the Colleg in all its facets and give it concrete expression in the day-to-day life of the schools.
