Our Early Starts and our Grade 2/3 students took charge of our October character trait this month! Our October school character trait to be acknowledged and incorporated into our classroom teachings was Generous. October being a month full of gratitude and thankfulness, generosity is the perfect trait of focus for our CGS students.
Generosity is the quality of being kind, unselfish, and willing to help or share with others without expecting anything in return. It involves acts of kindness, empathy, and a genuine concern for the welfare of others. Generosity is a fundamental character trait for all humans, and it can be nurtured in young minds to create caring, compassionate, and empathetic individuals. Encouraging generosity in our students sets the foundation for lifelong values and social responsibility.
Our Grade 2 and 3 students brought the character trait to life this month with many different activities with their most favourite exercise of showing and sharing generosity through teaching and educating their peers on some of their favourite hobbies and activities.
Have a look at some of our 2/3 student generous shares!
Leila shared mask making, and Leo shoelace tying.
Richard shared origami crane building, and Flora shared how to draw a fox.

Thomas shared knowledge and the how to on Fencing, and Niam shared magic tricks.
Frank shares his favourite game Heads or Tails, and Edison shared how to make an Ender Dragon.
William shared how to make a light sabre, and Jonathan shared some magic tricks!
Even our youngest students have been working on October’s character trait, Generous. Our Early Start students listened to a an online story titled George the Generous Giraffe and afterwards learned The Kindness Song. The children then brainstormed and came up with lots of ideas of how they can be generous to their friends in the classroom. They shared so many wonderful ways to spread a little love and kindness in their lives. It is never too young to expose our children to Character Education. Our world already looks a little brighter!
