Character Assembly on Honesty and Empathy

On December 11th we will be having a double Character Assembly to remind us of two important character traits "Honesty" and "Empathy" and to honour those children who have demonstrated these traits. Ms Yang and Ms Barrett's Grade 4/5 classes are hosting this assembly and will be sharing their thoughts on how to demonstrate these traits at school and at home. 

We are all reminded of the importance of continuously developing positive character traits in our children and always modelling how we hope that they will behave with others ourselves. Thank you. 
honesty /ˈɑːnəsti/ noun
: the quality of being fair and truthful : the quality of being honest

"Honesty and integrity are absolutely essential for success in life - all areas of life. The really good news is that anyone can develop both honesty and integrity." 
Em·pa·thy


noun: empathy
                              "the ability to understand and share the feelings of another"

To help our students understand empathy we encourage them to be kind and support one another through random acts of kindness. We also encourage them to support charitable organizations such as local Food Banks to help others in need. As previously mentioned, for the first few weeks of December we are holding our annual Food Drive campaign and ask that you send in non-perishable food donations. Thanks goes to all those who have already done so. Thank you!


Parents and families are always welcome to join us for our character assembly beginning at 10:45 a.m.
