Values Education

What is Values Education?

  • Main principles that guide you in your thoughts and actions.
  • Ethical DNA – as set of instructions hard-wired into your brain that will determine your behaviours without you even realising much of the time.
  • Sense of right and wrong, how and how not to behave.
  • Values are at the heart of who we are, driving what we do and how we do it!
