AIMS of QHIS Values
RespectWe start the year focusing on the value of “Respect”. This value is at the core of everything we do in school. We want our whole school community to respect each other. When students experience respect, they know what it feels like and begin to understand how important it is. We teach students how to respect people, communities, beliefs, families, colleagues, and cultures.
ResponsibilityResponsibility means the obligation to behave well and have a duty to fulfil. Responsibility also includes thinking about being a good and caring citizen and caring for our environment. We direct parents to talk to children about responsibility. We teach students how to feel responsible toward the community and people.
Self -confidenceSelf-confidence is understanding that you trust your own judgment and abilities, and that you value yourself and feel worthy, regardless of any imperfections or of what others may believe about you. We teach students how to deal with different situations bravely and powerfully.
ResilienceResilience is the ability to withstand adversity and flexibility when dealing with people in different situations. We teach our students to be flexible when dealing, to change mind if wrong, not to be stubborn, and to submit to the majority opinion.
ChallengeChallenge is difficult, often painful, always demanding, and as such, challenge is what makes true value, beauty, and fulfillment possible. Challenge can be tough, yet indeed it brings about the richness and fullness of life. We teach students how to face the obstacles of the world and not to lag behind.
CareCaring denotes someone or something that shows kindness and concern for others. A person who is concerned about others and who does kind things for them is an example of someone who would be described as caring. We teach students how to be caring and aware of the community problems.
TeamworkTeamwork is working together to get something done. Teamwork is the key to success. We teach students how to work with groups to achieve more for the interest of the community.
IntegrityA child can demonstrate integrity when they uphold honesty and differentiate between what is right and wrong. Integrity means following your moral convictions and doing the right thing in all circumstances, even if no one is watching. A person with integrity is truthful, honest, caring and genuine, dependable, and worthy of trust and respect. We teach students honesty and integrity.
CreativityCreativity is the act of turning new and imaginative ideas into reality. Creativity is characterized by the ability to perceive the world in new ways, to find hidden patterns, to make connections between seemingly unrelated phenomena, and to generate solutions. Creativity involves two processes: thinking, then producing. We teach students to be imaginative, resourceful, and creative thinkers.
Curious people always ask questions and search for answers in their minds. Their minds are always active. When you are curious about something, your mind expects and anticipates new ideas related to it. By being curious, you will be able to see new worlds and possibilities which are normally not visible. We teach students to be curious.
