Integration of Character Education Communicating Clear and Consistent…
At ISB we believe that Character Education is an important aspect of students’ learning. Our “Character education” program is an intentional effort to develop core values in young people that
are widely affirmed across all cultures.
Character is a set of personal traits or dispositions that produce specific moral emotions, inform motivation, and guide conduct.
Character education includes all explicit and implicit educational activities that help young people to develop positive personal strengths called virtues.
Our Character Education program is shaped around six character traits that were selected by all our stakeholders. We regularly review these character traits and these traits lead our decision-making and student activities.
The six character traits are:
Character Education is organized around the four strands of creativity, activity, service and any other experiences.
The Character Education programme enables students to demonstrate attributes of the ISB Character Traits in real and practical ways, grow as unique individuals, and recognise their role in interacting with others.
The Character Education programme formally begins at the start of each academic year and continues regularly, ideally every week, until student graduates from the ISB.
All Character Education students are expected to maintain and complete a Character Education portfolio as evidence of their engagement with the Character
Education. The Character Education portfolio is a collection of evidence that show character Education experiences and student reflections.
