“Open your arms to change, but don’t let go of your values.” - Dalai Lama
The quote above, I feel, relays the true importance of the values education here at BISC Lincoln Park. Whilst our Robotics lab exposes our children to the latest technology and our holistic approach to STEAM allows multifaceted application of skills and knowledge, we must always remember that holding values close to our core and having a solid moral compass will enable all students to move through life with integrity and success.
This school year, we have already covered several vital values that will enable future success both in the work place and throughout life, such as respect and peace. We will continue with a set of 24 values over a two year period offering our children the opportunity to see real life examples and express how they feel the value can and should be displayed. Our values education is something we are extremely passionate about here at BISC Lincoln Park, and something you will not see in other schools in the city.
