CHARACTER EDUCATION

 

Welcome Parents and Students!

This year we are re-vamping the Character Education Program at Heritage International School. For our on-going monthly program, the students
will be introduced to a new Character Education topic. During the lesson we will have a discussion or complete activities related to the  topic. We may also have goals we try and achieve in relation to the topic. For example if the topic is “Responsibility” the Grade 1 students
may have a goal to pack their belongings without assistance, and the Grade 6 students may have a goal to hand all assignments in on time.
This year all Character Education topics will be tied into two overall themes, “Anti-Bullying” and “Safety”
The topics being covered in Character Education this year are:

 Students, especially in elementary school, should be supervised when they are using technology.
 Cyber-Bullying is a modern type of bullying which sees children bullying each other through social media and communication apps such as  Whatsapp.

They were also told to follow 5 steps if they are cyberbullied. The steps are:

1. Do not respond!

2. Keep the evidence.

3. Report the person of the social media site.

4. Block the person.

5. Tell a parent or trusted adult.

 February – Kindness & Caring

Dear Parent,

 Your child is involved in learning activities designed to develop good character and help children
 make good choices. Our focus this month is on KINDNESS AND CARING.
 Your child can show kindness and caring by:
 – demonstrating these attributes toward themselves and others, including family, friends, and pets
 – being aware of others’ feelings without teasing or using put-downs
 – helping someone who is having a bad day
 Questions to discuss with your child:
 – How do we show kindness and caring toward each other in our family?
 – What other things could we do to show kindness and caring toward our family members?
 -What kinds of things can we do to show kindness and caring toward our friends?
