Character education

We must remember that intelligence is not enough. Intelligence plus character – that is the goal of true education. Martin Luther King Speech at Morehouse College 194

We believe in the individual abilities of every student, and it is our responsibility to help each child to achieve her/his fullest potential. We understand that students learn in different ways and we do our very best to address a variety of learning styles.

While we strongly believe in the academic development of our students, we also place paramount importance on the development of good character: Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring, Citizenship, resilience and persistence are the ethical values that guide our daily decisions.

Our character education program aims at promoting these values within our community to transform the school climate and culture into a learning environment that is safe, positive, nurturing and welcoming.

The character traits are promoted in the school through classroom discussions, positive reinforcement, assemblies, etc. Character education is also woven into the school‘s curriculum through literacy circles, Socratic Seminars, debates, etc.
