What is character?

Character is the pattern of thoughts, acts, and feelings someone shows over time. Someone with good character believes they should make good choices and shows over time that they almost always make choices that are honest, respectful, fair, caring, and responsible.

RESPECT

Respect means a feeling or show of honor or esteem for someone or something. Having respect for someone means you think good things about who a person is or how he/she acts. You can have respect for others, and you can have respect for yourself. Showing respect for others include things like not calling people mean names, treating people with courtesy, caring enough about yourself that you don't do things you know can hurt you.

FAIRNESS

Fairness means everyone is treated in a way that allows them to have equal opportunities. When fairness is shown there are no favourites and each person’s thoughts, words and actions are considered as important as the other’s.

CARING

Caring is showing concern and kindness to others. We care when we feel a strong desire to help other people in need. We care when we say something kind to help a friend or family member who is feeling sad or upset.
