Past and present students met in June 2020 to articulate what Fir Vale School stands for. This is what they said:
Fir Vale School is made up of loads of different ethnicities. We are all humans. Together, we are part of the makeup of Britain.
We should celebrate success, hard work and achievement, and take pride in what we do. We should have confidence in ourselves and show respect for our environment and our communities.
We should take an interest in learning about what we have in common and be kind to one another - treat others as you want to be treated.
We want everyone to be safe and comfortable at Fir Vale School.
If you see someone you don’t know, take the step to make them feel comfortable – uplifting others makes them and you feel better.
Take the opportunity to experience things outside your own culture.
We have an opportunity to shape the future. We live in a democracy where we all have a chance to vote. We should use that opportunity.
Find out what is right for you – make opportunities and work hard to achieve your goals.
Be determined, never give up; sometimes things are hard but there is light at the end of the tunnel.
Respect good laws that are there for all of our safety and protection.
Help others when you can, do charity work and help in the community.
