Character education has a prominent role in the lives of young children. Through an infusion of character education, Malta Avenue students engage in a multitude of activities to promote acts of kindness, good citizenship and tasks that develop skills and strategies to become good problem solvers. All students will recognize the worth, quality, and importance of themselves, other people and their community.
On the left is more information on how integrated character education is within our school community and curriculum.
The Character Education Committee encourages all stakeholders to practice and teach The Malta Way - Being proud of who you are on the inside and how you show it on the outside. We ask ourselves the three core questions that help us succeed. Am I being my best for myself, am I being my best for my school, am I being my best for my family?
