Das Tugendprojekt in der GPS

Jeden Monat beginnen wir nun mit einer neuen Tugend. Im Februar haben wir uns mit dem Thema Ehrlichkeit beschäftigt. Dazu gab es eine spannende Geschichte und viele Aktivitäten.

Es folgte die Hilfsbereitschaft. Hier lernten wir, dass jeder Mensch Lasten zu tragen hat und man diese durch Hilfsbereitschaft erleichtern kann. Eine besondere Hilfsbereitschaft ist das Ehrenamt – Beispiele dazu sind die Freiwillige Feuerwehr und das Rote Kreuz.

Den April widmen wir der Tugend Freundschaft. Es gibt viele Lieder über Freundschaft und wir alle haben einen oder sogar ganz viele Freunde. Aber was bedeutet Freundschaft wirklich? Entsteht sie von allein oder muss man auch etwas dafür tun? Wer kann alles ein Freund sein? – Mit diesen und noch vielen weiteren Fragen beschäftigen wir uns nun.

Zeichnet man sich in einer Tugend ganz besonders aus, so erhält man einen Sticker, welchen die Kinder an den Tugendbaum der GPS kleben dürfen. Unser Ziel ist es, dass der Baum zum Ende des Schuljahres ganz viele „Blätter“ trägt.

The virtues project at GPS

In the German Primary School we start every month to work on a new virtue. In February we talked about ‘honesty’. We heard an exciting story and did a lot of activities dealing with this virtue.

‘Honesty’ was followed by ‘helpfulness’. Everybody carries his own burden but we can help each other by offering our support and helpfulness. Volunteering is a special kind of helpfulness. People do it for example by joining the voluntary fire brigade.

In April we concentrate on the virtue ‘friendship’. There are a lot of songs about ‘friendship’ and we all have one or even more friends. But what does friendship really mean? Does it arise just like that? Or do we have to do something for it?  Who can be a friend for us? – It is our aim to figure it out during this month.

If a student distinguishes himself or herself by acting very well in one of the virtues, he or she can get a sticker. All the children from GPS are collecting those stickers to fill up the Tree of Virtues. Our aim is to fill the tree with lots of “leaves” by the end of the academic year.
