At One Planet, we believe that character education is an essential component of a well-rounded education. Character serves to direct the fruits of a well-trained mind towards the betterment of the world.
The One Planet pledge helps children to direct their thoughts towards this objective. Children as young as three begin to learn the pledge, and they continue the explore the depth of its meaning as they progress through the primary grades.
Every two weeks, the students, teachers and staff at the school learn about and practice one virtue. These virtues are what make up a good character in all cultures and traditions. Here are some of the virtues we learn and practice:
|* Love||* Generosity||* Kindness||* Patience||* Helpfulness|
|* Truthfulness||* Cleanliness||* Encouragement||* Courtesy||* Thankfulness|
In addition to learning and practicing a new virtue every two weeks, the children practice making the right choice when faced with a moral dilemma, and are rewarded for practicing good deeds and acts of service to others.
