Ethics and Morals

signpost for morals ethics respect honesty

Everybody’s life is a unique and special journey. As we travel along our own path – day after day, month after month, year after year – we become the sum total of everything that we do, everything that we say and everything that we think.

We will have the happiest and often the most rewarding life-journey when we try our hardest to lead an ethical and moral life which means that we really care a lot about right and wrong and how our words and actions can either help ourselves and others and the environment … or how our words and actions can cause harm and upset and disharmony.

Follow the links below to our pages about respect, honesty, gratitude, etc., and spend some time discussing and thinking about what leading an ethical and moral life might involve:

Respect – simply treating others as we ourselves would like to be treated.

Honesty – from a very young age we quickly learn that the bad habit of telling lies gets results!

Gratitude – take a minute to think about how much you have in your life rather than how little.

Taking pride in what we do – are you giving 100%? …. or doing just enough to get by?

Caring and thoughtfulness – taking the spotlight off yourself and putting it on others.

Loyalty – recognising the importance and value of the bonds we have with others and working to strengthen them.

IMPORTANT NOTE for parents, carers and teachers. The information provided on the above pages is to encourage discussion and debate under the guidance of a responsible adult. Every child’s personal circumstances are different so the context of the discussion should be adjusted accordingly. Always be sensitive to others’ experiences and opinions.
