Over the summer, Mr Gates and Ms Jonsson visited the United States on a fact-finding mission about an exciting concept called Character Counts.  This educational strategy places greater emphasis on establishing a positive school climate and instilling lifelong academic, social and emotional skills, as well as core character traits in students.

Character Counts focuses on six pillars - Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring and Citizenship.

Since the start of the school year, Character Counts has been implemented with great enthusiasm by both teachers and students.

Keep your eyes peeled for more information about Character Counts via our social media outlets and also in the upcoming Parent Meetings.
