Moral is knowledge relating to formation of human character and behavior. To instill good character and behavior based on Christian values requires cooperation of all parties who are school community.
Children will be introduced to their Savior. Children will be taught to fear God. Children will be introduced to religious leaders who have incredible life in their time and can be an example and blessing in the children’s life.
Children are indoctrinated to have social spirit, when they realize that they do not live alone. Socializing is something that plays the most important role to grow a sense of social to children.
Playing plays a role in social emotional development of the children. Besides increasing independence and responsibility, through playing the children will learn to share, wait for turn and cooperate in a group.
Children need to develop identity and positive tolerance toward other people who have different opinion or experience from theirs. Children must be able to keep their own belongings in their lockers, tidy up toys after playing, take their own lunch box, go to the toilet by themselves, wear their own shoes.
