The Values-based Curriculum

A Values-based Curriculum is a balanced, holistic approach to education that wraps around the national and individual school-focused curriculum to create an environment that is shaped by an explicit teaching and modelling of pro-social and pro-environmental human values. The achievements of a values-based curriculum for students include developing a positive sense of self-worth, improved ethical and relational capacities and a greater connection with the natural world.
