Character Education Day

It was great to see everyone dressed up on Friday as pupils celebrated the values and virtues of people that they admire. We had famous men and women from the past and present, from the fields of medicine, politics, sport, science, the arts and academia. We also had people much closer to home who pupils recognise have values and virtues that they admire: it was heart-warming to see some of the children come to school dressed as grandparents and for them to be able to explain the impact that their friendship, guidance and support has had on them.

 

One of the core purposes of embarking on a series of Character Education lessons (which all the children have been completing since January) is to explicitly teach about a set of virtues, what they look like in action and what they mean to an individual and to others: it has been lovely to see the children start to get to grips with some of the language of finding out just what this means.
