Courage

Being courageous can mean different things to different people. For example, one person may think it easy to speak in front of a large audience, whilst another would need to find lots of courage to do this.

Everyone faces challenges from time to time, and we have to find courage to overcome them.

Forgiveness

Everyone makes mistakes, it’s part of being human. Sometimes our mistakes hurt others and then we need to say sorry. Sometimes mistakes made by other people hurt us. When this happens we need to be able to forgive.

Forgiveness can be difficult and costly but without it a new start is impossible.

Friendship

Learning to be a good friend, someone who can be trusted and is loyal, takes a lifetime.

Talk together about how friends come in all shapes and sizes. Some are young, some are old. Some are always there, some we see only occasionally.

Generosity

When we think about generosity we usually think about being generous with money or possessions. However, we can also be generous with our time, our gifts and our abilities.

Generous people often say that they receive much more than they give. Perhaps this is because when someone is generous to us, it makes us want to be generous in return.

Justice

Justice means more than making things ‘fair’.

In order for people to live together well in a just community, it is important to have rules or laws that everybody sticks to. Imagine if there were no rules for people driving cars on the road!

Perserverance

Teachers often say that perseverance is something that many children find difficult.

Very little that is really worthwhile in life can be achieved without perseverance. An athlete may train for years before they are ready to compete at the highest level.

Respect

We are learning at school about the importance of treating others with respect even if we sometimes do not agree with the way they behave or the things they say. We have also been thinking about how we should treat the things that belong to us and to other people respectfully.

Service

Jesus was called the ‘servant king’; his mission was to serve God and to serve all those people he met, through his teaching, his example and the way he led his life.

Who are the unsung heroes who serve us?

Trust

Trust is a really important value. It must be earned. If we do not trust someone it is very hard to build a good friendship with them.

Truthfulness

‘I promise to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help me God’

In a court of law a witness swears an oath on the Bible or another sacred text, but sometimes in everyday life people find it more difficult to be truthful.
