Character Education

Overview

As part of our mission to deliver whole person education, character education is an important part of our daily lessons. Based on our eight character strengths, we have designed a curriculum that meets the needs of the Pao School community. Students receive lessons during their character education lesson time, and learn about the definitions and discuss how they can show these strengths in their daily lives. Throughout the day, students will have the opportunity to reflect on these character strengths in each of their lessons. At Pao School, we believe that every teacher is a character teacher and eventually every student will be a character teacher.

Accordion Parent training

Pao School offers special classes for parents throughout the year. Parents may attend various workshops delivered by our very own teachers, or by local and international experts. For more intensive training, we offer the Love & Logic Course, taught by a professional family therapist. Parents have the chance to share their experiences while practising the techniques they share in the class. Courses will be announced via the weekly school newsletter.

If you are interested in attending these workshops or would like further information, please contact:

Accordion Special lessons delivered by parents

At Pao School, we believe that offering effective character lessons requires the involvement of the entire community. For this reason, Pao School parents have supported the delivery of these very special lessons:

  • YK Pao School Story Team
    The Pao School Story Team programme delivers valuable lessons in Chinese. Each month, Pao School parents share stories and discuss important life lessons with students.
  • The Characters
    ‘The Characters’ are a group of parents who deliver monthly lessons based on the eight character strengths. These interactive lessons are taught in English.

New parents are welcome to join either group.

Pao School provides opportunities for students to be involved in giving back to the community. The school has supported several causes, including The Giving Tree Project and Children’s Palace. Aside from these organisations, students also have the chance to create their own initiatives.
