Staff Development


At St. Stephen's Primary School, we are driven by the biblical verse, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." Our vision serves as a constant source of motivation for our staff development efforts. We believe that by nurturing and empowering our staff, we equip them to excel in their roles. Our commitment to staff development goes beyond mere professional growth; it is a spiritual journey that helps our educators discover their full potential and embrace their unique talents. Through ongoing training, support, and a strong sense of community, we aim to create an environment where our staff can truly thrive, enabling them to provide the best possible educational experience for our children.
