Colley House

Colley House Covenant


Represented within Colley House are a wide range of cultures, heritages and experiences. we cherish and protect our identities whilst appreciating the uniqueness of one another. although we come from different backgrounds, we find comfort in the fact that we are all united through the bonds we share as bulldogs.  


We strive to become the best individuals we can be. We recognize the value in self-improvement and know that there are no shortcuts in life. only through dedication and hard work do we make our dreams become reality. Not only will we try and improve ourselves, but also the groups and environments that we are part of.


We will have the courage to stand up for what we believe in and make decisions that are just and ethical. We will follow our intuition and do what is right no matter what. Change requires a catalyst and as bulldogs we understand that it is our responsibility to fulfill this role.
