World Values Day - 20th October 2018

World Values Day logo

Values are the things that are important to us.
Values are what make us who we are. They are the compass guiding everything we do – our choices and our actions.

When we forget that compass, we take the wrong turn. It’s the same for our families, for our communities, for the world.
Our values show us the way.

International Day for Tolerance - 16th November 2018

Tolerance isn’t necessary if we are in agreement.
We are allowed to disagree, but it is the manner and attitude with which we express our views which is important.UN logo World Tolerance Day
​Tolerance is a term often used interchangeably with ‘celebrating diversity’, and whilst both terms complement each other, ‘tolerance’ is the only concept that gets to the heart of the really difficult work in educating young people on how to address people, practices and perspectives that they do not understand or do not agree with.
