Year 9 Character Curriculum
We believe that character can be shaped through a well-designed curriculum that emphasises values such as respect, responsibility, and resilience. The Year 9 character curriculum aims to develop students’ ethical and social skills, attitudes, and behaviours that contribute to their personal and societal wellbeing. By integrating character education into the curriculum, students learn how to make ethical and responsible decisions, resolve conflicts peacefully, and develop positive relationships with others. Character education is crucial because it helps students to become better citizens who can contribute positively to their communities. Moreover, it prepares students to face challenges and make choices that align with their values, even in difficult situations. Our well-designed character curriculum can instil these values in students, providing a foundation for their personal and academic growth and success.
When students follow the character curriculum in Year 9 they will develop the 9 key character qualities we believe are instrumental in supporting students to be the best they can be:
RESPECT: Positivity | Empathy | Virtue
RESPONSIBILITY: Independence | Collaboration | Honour
RESILIENCE: Courage | Passion | Curiosity
