"Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then is not an act but a habit."-- Aristotle
This is what the Vatican journey has been.
Excellence in education requires input and dedication of the school and its faculty on one hand and the students, their parents and families on the other. When one of these is found wanting or does not participate enthusiastically, then the best results are not achieved. Our endeavour to engage all 3 elements is evident in the consistently excellent results we achieve, year after year since inception of our school.
Perfection is not attainable but when we chase perfection with enthusiasm, we can surely attain excellence. Vaticanites live by this maxim.
