To create a generation of citizens who:
- Tolerate and accept cultures other than their own.
- Appreciate their local heritage and culture.
- Make well informed and responsible judgements of moral importance.
- Understand their civic system, rights and responsibilities.
Students at The Elite English School will study Moral education from Grades 1 to 12 during the 2019-20 academic year. The program is designed to be taught in a series of units. A unit requires six, 40 minute lessons of teaching time during the course of half a term or across two half-terms.
Moral education lessons are taught as discrete lessons; however, concepts from the framework will be embedded and emphasised throughout the school.
The curriculum framework is separated into four pillars:
- Character and Morality
- Individual and Community
- Civic Studies
- Cultural Studies
Moral Education not only focuses on the curriculum but also has a multifaceted targeted approach to student development.
- At home – Parents are involved actively in the school community and are aware of the child’s school life. They are engaged with the MOED curriculum and actively take part in it with their children.
- Holistic School Environment – School administration, curriculum, teachers, extra-curricular activities, field trips, lectures, community service, and other activities.
- Wider Community – Recreational Activities, Media, work readiness and volunteering; students are not isolated in their schools but rather actively take part in community outreach and service. The wider community is aware of the material of the Moral Education and takes part in the dialogue around it.
