Character Always
Character Education - Character Always!

The UCDSB ‘Character Always!’ initiative is based on the ten virtues valued most by our school communities: caring, fairness, honesty, empathy, responsibility, perseverance, respect, and resilience.
 
All schools have implemented a Character Always Program, based on the Board-wide program. 
 
Responsibility is leading the way, helping to accomplish tasks through initiative and hard work.
 
Fairness is being open-minded, taking turns, and trusting others.
 
Respect is honouring differences, caring for yourself and others.
 
Caring is showing concern and interest in others and yourself.
 
Honesty is speaking and doing what you believe is right, no matter what the consequences.
 
Generosity is someone you can trust, someone who listens and cares for you.
 
Empathy is the ability to feel with another, show understanding and express it.
 
Courage is being a person who is involved in trying to make the community a better place, respects authority, and protects the environment.
 
Perseverance is having the strength and courage to never give up.

Resiliency is having a positive attitude and inner strength to bounce back from a tough time.
