Quoted from my school newsletter:

THE 8 KEY VALUES ARE:

EXCELLENCE by aiming high and persevering

in the face of difficulties

DIVERSITY as found in our different cultures

and heritages

COMMUNITY AND PARTICIPATION for the

common good

RESPECT for themselves, for others and for

human rights

EQUITY which means fairness and social justice

INTEGRITY which involves being honest,

responsible and accountable and acting

ethically.

CARE FOR THE ENVIRONMENT (the earth and

its interrelated eco-systems)

INNOVATION, INQUIRY AND CURIOSITY by

thinking creatively, critically and reflectively.

I was wondering if anyone would like to comment on these values and if they think they should be entrenched as a part of a curriculum.

Well firstly I would like to ask what school this is. It sounds like the sort of thing alot of New Zealand schools would put in their newsletter.

Some of sounds good in theory, ie the excellence stuff. However if you consider it with the say "Community and Particapation for the common good" then you have to wonder if this school might not have contradictory principles. They do not define "the common good" it would seem. Nor what "fairness and social justice" is. If they do give some sort of hint somewhere please do share it. Both of those last two could be praticed in some rather horrible ways for all I know...
