Trust

Trust

“Trusting someone is like knowing you can jump and they will be there to catch you” Anon

RESPECT

“Respect – to get it you must give it”  Anon

FRIENDSHIP

Learning to be a good friend, someone who can be trusted and is loyal, takes a lifetime.

“A good friend is worth their weight in gold.”  Anon

FORGIVENESS

Everyone makes mistakes, it’s part of being human. Sometimes our mistakes hurt others and then we need to say sorry.  Sometimes mistakes made by other people hurt us. When this happens we need to be able to forgive.  Forgiveness can be difficult and costly but without it a new start is impossible.

COURAGE

Being courageous can mean different things to different people. For example, one person may think it easy to speak in front of a large audience, whilst another would need to find lots of courage to do this. Everyone faces challenges from time to time, and we have to find courage to overcome them.

“Courage is not the absence of fear, but the willingness to overcome that fear.”   Nelson Mandela

Generosity

When we think about generosity we usually think about being generous with money or possessions. However, we can also be generous with our time, our gifts and our abilities.  Generous people often say that they receive much more than they give.  Perhaps this is because when someone is generous to us, it makes us want to be generous in return.

Service

Who are the unsung heroes who
serve us?
• at school
• at home
• out of school activities?
How do you serve others?
• at school
• at home
• out of school activities?

Justice

JUSTICE

Justice means more than making things ‘fair’.  In order for people to live together well in a just community, it is important to have rules or laws that everybody sticks to.

Perseverance

Perseverance

Very little that is really worthwhile
in life can be achieved without
perseverance. An athlete may train
for years before they are ready to
compete at the highest level. A
musician must practice every day,
sometimes for hours at a time, if they
are to really master their instrument.

• Can you give an example of
something you have achieved by
determined perseverance?
• Is there a skill that you think you
could improve with perseverance?

Thankfulness

‘Count your blessings’ is an old saying, but it reminds us to be thankful and not take things for granted.

As a family you may like to talk about:

  • Remembering to let other people know when you are thankful
  • Not taking things for granted
  • Practical ways of showing gratitiude
  • How it feels when someone thanks you!

The Value for Term 5 is Friendship.

Learning to be a good friend, someone who can be trusted and is loyal, takes a lifetime.
Friends come in all shapes and sizes. Some are young, some are old. Some are always there, some we see only occasionally.  Questions we can ask ourselves. 
• How do we choose our friends?
• What makes a good friend?
• Are we a good friend to others?

The value of term 4 is Forgiveness.

Everyone makes mistakes, it’s part of being human. Sometimes our mistakes hurt others and then we need to say sorry. Sometimes mistakes made by other people hurt us. When this happens we need to be able to forgive.  Forgiveness can be difficult and costly but without it a new start is impossible.

“Without forgiveness there is no future…. If you can forgive, then you can move on and even help the person you are forgiving to become a better person”

Desmond Tutu

Thought of the Day

Trust is a really important value. It must be earned. If we do not trust someone it is very hard to build a good friendship with them.
Talk together about:
• people who you know that are trustworthy
• practical ways that we can show others that we are trustworthy
• why it is important to be able to trust others when working together as a team
