Identifying Character Attributes for the LKDSB
Though character development is very much a part of being and learning in the Lambton Kent District School Board, a key objective to be reached this year is the identification of a set of character attributes that will serve as the hallmarks for our work going forward. It is our intent that these attributes be identified through a process of family, school, and community consultation. It is through this process that we will find common ground on the qualities which our schools will foster through both systematic and intentional practices.
Character development is about community development. We want students to develop self discipline and the personal management skills that will make their workplaces, communities, and lives the best that they can be.
Because we care about our youth and the future well-being of our communities, we all share the responsibility to model the universal attributes upon which we find common ground.
"It is the repeated practice of working with and connecting supportively to others that moves a young person from an isolated focus on "me" to an altruistic concern for others and society." - TRIBES
