St Benedicts Primary School Principal Michael Hinds says the decision to construct four large ‘pencils’ displaying the school’s values in English and Maori at the front of their school was an

easy one. “Those EPIC values are of Empathy, Perseverance, Integrity and Creativity,” he says, explaining that they originated from their founding order, the Brigidine

Sisters, who developed them. “Our values underpin everything we do. They show in how we treat one another, and how we prepare our students for life and learning beyond St Benedict’s School.”
