Shaping Character, Shaping Destinies
Core values such as respect, responsibility, honesty and care are the basic building blocks of a socially responsible person. Our character building programme (conducted in Chinese) uses a three-pronged approach:
Engagement - Children learn values such as care, honesty, good judgement, responsibility and respect for others who come from different cultural and racial backgrounds — through role-play and fun rhymes.
Critical thinking - Using pictorial scenarios as a teaching aid, children are engaged in discussions and share what they understand to be morally right or wrong.
Action - Daily activities such as independent attendance marking, queuing up to wash hands and being tasked to look after little bonsais help to reinforce aspects of character development like responsibility.
AIt is through hands-on experiences that concepts become internalised and children construct an understanding of how the world works. The programme engages parents in shared activities which can take place at home.
