Value for September and October-Tolerance

The Value for September and October is Tolerance. The slogan that we have developed for Tolerance is “Be a Mate and Tolerate”. In teaching tolerance to your children, we will have a focus on the following:

  • be aware of others and their cultures
  • accept diversity within our democratic society

be included and include others

We will be teaching your children the importance of understanding that people are different physically, socially, culturally and that acceptance of difference with compassion, understanding and empathy encourages tolerance within our school culture. It is now a great time to reinforce tolerance with your children and of course, the best way is to model tolerant behaviour yourself.
