WHAT DOES COURAGE MEAN TO...
During some of the toughest moments in her life, Cornelia had the courage to stay true to herself and what she stood for. She had the courage, as a young wife and single mother, to set up her own organisation founded on her core beliefs. She had the courage to challenge what she knew was unjust and worked hard to make her voice heard.
A MEMBER OF GERALDINE HOUSE
"Courage is not the absence of fear but the triumph over it. Courageous people feel fear but are able to manage and overcome it so that it doesn't stop them from taking action."
A HOLY CHILD SCHOOL
Students of Holy Child schools are taught to have courage to stand up for what they believe in, be themselves and stand out from the crowd. They are encouraged to step outside of their comfort zones and have courage to share their talents with others.
