Commit to Character: Caring

The SCDSB’s 10 values are a key part of our commitment to character education. We refer to our values as character attributes. Each month our schools recognize and celebrate a different attribute. This month on the blog, we highlight ‘caring’.

Caring: We show kindness towards each other

Some examples of how we can be caring:

  • treat people with kindness and generosity
  • help those in need
  • be sensitive to the feelings of others
  • don’t be mean/hurtful
  • think about how your actions will affect others
  • be polite
  • apologize when you need to

Some ways that students in our schools learn about and develop caring include:

  • brainstorm about “Random Acts of Kindness” and discuss how they affect other people and yourself personally
  • select someone who has demonstrated caring towards you and write a letter of thanks and recognition to that person

“We should behave to our friends as we wish our friends to behave to us.” – Aristotle
