Moral values are the behavioral practices, goals, and habits that are validated by the society of which we are a part. They are ideas that society considers important. Moral values are at play when a person interacts with the wider world or has to make a decision that will have a consequence on others.
Schools have a role to play in passing on common moral values to the next generation. To do this, they must provide moral education. Schools must also help children to pick their way through the minefields of moral controversy. Many moral standards are fiercely contested and it is not for schools to decide whether or not they are justified.
Ensuring children subscribe to common morality, and understand the reasons for, is a task schools must not shrink from, as society depends on it. It is vital that children understand the reason for the existence of these moral values and the demands to fulfill them.
Mount Olympus School believes in inculcating these moral values to all age groups and creating a strong foundation.
