Character Development Lesson



The Character Development programme in MTS which aims to sow the seeds of goodness in the hearts of Mee Tohians and help them develop good moral character is planned and carried out in collaboration with Tzu Chi Singapore. Being the first school on-board the partnership with Tzu Chi’s Team of Great Love Mothers, a group of mothers (volunteers) who had their hearts set on accompanying school children on their journey of growth since 13 February 2008, we work closely with them to align the lessons and materials to our school values. We also have discussions regularly on how to better guide the students in class, and fine-tune the programme.

During the weekly 30-minute Character Development period, the Great Love Mothers engage the P1 to P3 students in lessons specially designed to inculcate the teaching of Jing Si Aphorisms, and activities and discussions related to values education, through the use of student-centric and creative pedagogies, such as puppet shows, skits and sign language songs.
