Val­ues and responsibilities

The word ‘envir­on­ment’ evokes images of pristine oceans, lakes and forests pop­u­lated by diverse vari­et­ies of fish, anim­als and plants, but it also reminds us of pol­luted air, dirty water, dead fish, fossil-fuelled agri­cul­ture, park­ing lots, high­ways and so on. It is our respons­ib­il­ity to teach chil­dren empathy towards the plan­et we live on through pos­it­ive rein­force­ments that pro­mote respons­ib­il­it­ies such as; recyc­ling and waste reduc­tion, caring for nature, agri­cul­ture and to instil gen­er­al know­ledge about how to pro­tect the home we live in.

Respect, kind­ness, hon­esty, cour­age, per­sever­ance, self-dis­cip­line, com­pas­sion, gen­er­os­ity, are all val­ues that every­one should foster, these are val­ues that the CLP foster, how to accept everyone’s indi­vidu­al­ity and dif­fer­ences is a big part of our ethos.
