Good habits and attitudes are particularly promoted at Stella International School. A ‘good habit’ is agreed upon with the parents, according to the curriculum and every fortnight it changes. Parents, school and children pull together in this effort.
Much of school-learned content will be forgotten over time. What carries on thoughout out lives are those attitudes and habits that we acquire in childhood. Elementary school plays a central role here: work attitudes, self-organization, the ability to think independently, social skills in dealing with fellow human beings – elementary school time is very important for the acquisition of these traits.
During the year, Stella International School focuses on nine specific attitudes or good habits: order, generosity, gratitude, hard work, strength, respect, honesty, sense of responsibility and joy. Goals in acquiring these good habits are articulated.
“Generosity – I let everybody play and exclude nobody”
“Gratitude – I am grateful for the beautiful in my life”
“Order” – I help the classroom be neat and beautiful”
The “good habit” is an underlying theme in teaching using motivational images. Also, you as a parent receive this motivational picture along with some exercises and tips to use at home to reinforce the good habit.
