Christian character development at King Christian School
Character is defined as strength of moral fibre. Persons of character are noted for their honesty, ethics and charity.
A person’s character is the sum of his or her disposition, thoughts, desires and actions. It’s good to remember that character is gauged by general tendencies not on the basis of a few isolated actions.
Character is influenced and developed by our choices and, in turn, influences our choices. Character will help children weather the storms of life.
It is God’s purpose to develop character within his children. At King Christian School, we recognize that life is a journey that is moulded and shaped by the work of the Holy Spirit. We walk alongside the students to help develop character by controlling thoughts, practicing Christian virtues, guarding hearts, and keeping good company.
“Because you have these blessings, you should try as much as you can to add these things to your lives: to your faith, add goodness; and to your goodness, add knowledge; and to your knowledge, add self-control; and to your self-control, add the ability to hold on; and to your ability to hold on, add service for God; and to your service for God, add kindness for your brothers and sisters in Christ; and to this kindness, add love.” (1 Peter 1:5-7, ICB)
Girls and boys of character will set a good example for others to follow and their reputations will be evident to all.
