Our vision, Thriving together is our ultimate goal for everyone at Our Lady of Pity. We want every member of our community to be successful, healthy and happy in life. Each child is unique and special, made in the image and likeness of God, with many gifts and talents. We have the highest of aspirations for every child to reach their potential and flourish in their own individual way. All stakeholders involved in shaping our vision described Our Lady of Pity as a family. It is for this reason that we included the word ‘together’, as together we are stronger and can learn from each other.
