While most parents and teachers recognize the importance of nurturing a good character in children many are unsure how to achieve it. To empower teachers and parents in this important task, we offer some resources and tools as a starting point for developing a character education program, which ultimately needs to be tailored to the needs of each school. These include:


Our curriculum is designed to be integrated into any school or home setting. It offers 190 lesson plans, based on 19 age-appropriate virtues, presented to the children over the course of the school year.These 19 virtues are: Truthfulness, Courtesy, Gentleness, Responsibility, Cleanliness , Helpfulness, Unity, Patience, Obedience, Joyfulness, Generosity , Kindness, Courage, Peacefulness, Love, Friendliness, Thankfulness, Compassion and Service.

A set of 10 lesson plans on each virtue has been developed through a balanced combination of interactive discussion, songs, art activities and games. Resources to accompany these lesson plans include “Virtues in Action” books, specially written or selected songs that carry the message of the virtue, quiz games, and a virtues log book. The curriculum and resources are provided in the spirit of service for schools to trial and adopt or add other resources according to their individual needs.

It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using ‘Content here, content here’, making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for ‘lorem ipsum’ will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).

Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of “de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum” (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, “Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..”, comes from a line in section 1.10.32.
The standard chunk of Lorem Ipsum used since the 1500s is reproduced below for those interested. Sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 from “de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum” by Cicero are also reproduced in their exact original form, accompanied by English versions from the 1914 translation by H. Rackham.

There are many variations of passages of Lorem Ipsum available, but the majority have suffered alteration in some form, by injected humour, or randomised words which don’t look even slightly believable. If you are going to use a passage of Lorem Ipsum, you need to be sure there isn’t anything embarrassing hidden in the middle of text. All the Lorem Ipsum generators on the Internet tend to repeat predefined chunks as necessary, making this the first true generator on the Internet. It uses a dictionary of over 200 Latin words, combined with a handful of model sentence structures, to generate Lorem Ipsum which looks reasonable. The generated Lorem Ipsum is therefore always free from repetition, injected humour, or non-characteristic words etc.
