a sense of craftsmanship, re-drafting and improving what we do, aiming for
excellence and pride in our work. Self-confidence comes from the ability to
succeed, even though the journey may have been difficult.
We encourage our students to have strategies to see through
problems and complete the task together as part of a community. As our students

reap the rewards of doing this. We want our students to rise to challenges and
perform at their best, this will then give them solid foundations for their
future careers beyond PCS.
