Character Education

Schools, parents and the broader community in the Renfrew County District School Board (RCDSB) are engaged in character development initiatives. Good character needs to be modelled, taught and practiced by all members of the district's learning community. The attributes of character development are universal and transcend socio-economic status, racial, ethno-cultural, linguistic, religious, gender, physical and intellectual ability and other demographic factors.

Character education provides a foundation of respect and positive behaviours upon which anti-bullying programs can thrive.

Character Virtues

The RCDSB upholds the following character virtues:

  • Respect;
  • Responsibility;
  • Honesty;
  • Perseverance;
  • Optimism;
  • Courage; and
  • Initiative.

Our school selects a different trait each month to provide specific, explicit instruction.  Students are recognized every quarter for demonstration of these traits.
