At One World International School, kindness is the most critical element among a whole gamut of personal, emotional and social ingredients that we add to our scholastic mix. What we demonstrate and how we teach kindness equips our children to excel, not merely succeed, in all their life roles, not just in their careers.
"Kindness is at the core of everything we do at OWIS. In Early Childhood, we work with our children to model and explain kindness and to celebrate acts of kindness. Teachers are kind to children and to each other. Our Grade 5 Kindness Leaders come to support the younger children on the playground, again modeling kindness. We have found that a consistently positive and kind approach, where we truly value and embody kindness, has enabled the children to really understand its value. Our children strive to be kind people in everything they do."
OWIS emphasizes a global community and a comprehensive approach to education. We have over 70 nationalities here, and the ability for everyone to work collaboratively to develop a new understanding based on diverse and opposing points of view is of paramount importance. Being able to relate harmoniously to teachers and peers (and parents) is a necessity. Compassion and kindness are core values.
