SPRINGDALES, ALMORA ETHOS
The values of Springdales have been founded upon the ‘Three Pillars of Springdales’. These are the three areas we believe every Springanian should excel; Resilience, Scholarship and Fellowship.
Our students are taught to never give up in the pursuit of goals and achievements. We teach them how to cope with setbacks and learn from them. We help them develop a positive mindset that embraces challenge, makes no excuses, and is never defeated.
We instil in our students a love and passion for learning. We teach them not to be nervous of academic rigour. We celebrate it and indeed expect to see it in every single lesson.
We place great emphasis on our supportive community and developing a young person with an internationalist outlook. We teach our students that the biggest impact they can have on another person’s life is simply by being kind and thoughtful to them. We uphold this value every day at Springdales.
21st CENTURY LEARNING
