All students are good individuals and useful citizens.
Character Development in CHIJ OLQP establishes Character Lives in my Behaviour (CLIMB) through the Virtues Project that involves developing students in the acquisition of the right virtues to work together to mould them into a humble leader, enthusiastic learner and gracious lady with the promotion of love, truth, justice and freedom.
Character Lives in My Behaviour
CHIJ OLQP’s Character Development programme, CLIMB, aims to develop every student into an Enthusiastic Learner, Humble Leader and Gracious Lady. CLIMB adopts The Virtues Project, a positive, holistic program used to bring out the best in children and adults. (Linda Kavelin Popov, 2000)
The CLIMB framework uses The Virtues Project as a CCE teaching and learning tool. It focuses on virtues that are aligned to promote the school’s mission, vision and values on a termly basis.
The use of five strategies used in the Virtues Project are:
1. Speak the Language of Virtues
2. Recognize Teachable Moments
3. Set Clear Boundaries
4. Honour the Spirit
5. Offering the Art of companioning
