Establishing school values is crucial for our school program as they provide a guiding framework that fosters a positive and consistent learning environment, instills a sense of shared purpose among students and staff, and cultivates a culture of respect, responsibility, and personal development.
- To make consistent effort to achieve our goals.
- To work hard in all aspects of the program.
- To build resilience, responsibility and a never give up attitude.
- To honour the sacredness within ourselves and others.
- To recognise our strengths and weaknesses and the reasons for failure and, as a result, enhance our chances for success.
- To serve others with grace and respect.
- To put ourselves outside our comfort zone – both physically & mentally – to develop & deepen our learning & character.
- To express ourselves & stand up for others.
- To endeavour to succeed, even though there is a chance of failure.
- To show understanding, care, and love for ourselves and other people.
- To take time and effort to draft, redraft and critique our work.

Habits of Work and Learning
Our day and boarding school wholeheartedly embrace the profound philosophy of Guru Nanak Dev Ji, which revolves around the principles of Naam Japo, Kirat Karo and Vand Chhako. These timeless teachings guide our educational approach, fostering an environment of spirituality, hard work and compassion among our students, and are what we refer to as our Habits of Work and Learning (HoWLs). These empowering HoWLs are our essential character traits that guide us in setting the right path for students’ personal and academic growth.
- I connect with myself and become neutral before beginning any activity
- I cultivate my spirit through contemplative practice
- I recognize the power of my words
- I arrive for each class on time and prepared
- I apply myself 100% to every activity
- I take responsibility for my learning by asking questions and seeking help when needed
- I work cooperatively with others
- I take care of shared resources and act as a steward of our community
- I look for opportunities to share my time, attention and resources with others
We are dedicated to empowering and supporting our students to reach their full potential. One of the ways we achieve this is through our Crew initiative, where each student is assigned to a dedicated group. Crew meetings take place daily and are a chance to connect and support each other’s growth.
- Crew meetings support students to achieve success academically, physically and spiritually.
- These sessions focus on essential areas such as goal setting, creating study plans, reflecting on progress, and developing important life skills.
- Our Crew sessions serve as a safe space for students to discuss any challenges or concerns they may be facing in their lives.
- By providing this ongoing support and guidance, we ensure that our students receive comprehensive and holistic support, enabling them to thrive academically and personally.
Each Crew session starts with a meditation. During their time at MPA, it is our endeavor that students develop a connection to themselves and the divine. By starting each day with meditation, we are creating space for students to develop their meditative capacity and learn to start their day with devotion.
After the meditation, Crew leaders provide a check in question to develop group bonds and engage in a Crew activity based on the topic for the day.
