A Community of Character

A Community of Character

“A Community of Character” is a set of attributes that provide a standard of behaviour against which all individuals can hold themselves accountable. Character Development is a responsibility shared between home, school and community. Students need to be exposed to good character and have the importance of it reinforced by everyone around them.

A safe and caring learning community is one that takes a holistic approach to learning and academic achievement through the infusion of character education and opportunities for character development, respect for diversity, and citizenship development.

We’re very excited to announce our new character education plans for 2012-2013. Students and staff are declaring this a year of possibility! Each month, we will take on a new 'mission' that focuses our many positive character traits on specific ideas and tasks that can make our world (here at school, in our community and around our planet) a better place. Special events will be planned to help support our monthly missions. All students will be encouraged to jump on board and take part in our monthly mission journeys to help spread good character here at Huntley Centennial PS.
