Value of the Month


When thinking of this value I’m reminded of footballers, who having scored a goal, run to their supporters kissing the badge on their shirt. They are often to be found 6 months later at a different club who have offered them more money or improved prospects of winning! I’m not decrying them for moving but that really is lip-service. Real loyalty takes time – you experience highs and lows – and you stick by someone or something regardless of the circumstances.

This month we will be teaching children that loyalty is something that we can build through remembering and practising some of the following:

  • Show appreciation
  • Be supportive in times of struggle
  • Maintain their confidence (keep their secrets if they share them with you)
  • Keep your promises
  • Act in their best interests
  • Address problems privately
