About The Video
Result oriented and academically driven, society as a whole is increasingly placing more pressure onto children; with emphasis on grades and head knowledge.
Academic achievement isn’t always an absolute measure of a student’s intelligence or grades as the ultimate aim of education after all is to raise confident, curious, knowledgable and upright individuals. More emphasis should be placed on being a value-driven education and student-centric system instead of a results oriented one.
Particularly during the impressionable ages of 1 – 12 y/o, children’s way of learning is predominantly through mirroring of adults. The people and the environment in which they grow up in, ultimately influences their behaviour as well as their value system.
Behaviour in turns affects their perception of the world; how they deal with people and situations. All of which have many imperceptible implications on aspects of their lives; be it academically, socially or emotionally.
This video also hopes to raise more awareness about character education. As well the importance of role models (parents, teachers, etc) and how they play a central role in children’s lives.
After all, character is caught, not taught.
