Our Church Council chose this value to focus on: ‘Everyone needs to be honest because Jesus’ disciple [Peter] wasn’t honest [when he denied Jesus].’ (Year 3 Church Council member)
What is honesty? Honesty is being trustworthy and truthful in our friendships, our relationships, our school and our community. We understand that we need to be honest and truthful with others when working together as a team.
Home challenge: Talk with your family – what are the consequences of not being honest or write a story or draw a picture to show what happens when people are dishonest. Bring it in to add to your class reflection areas.
At home, talk about honesty:
- How can we be honest in our daily lives?
- How can we encourage people to be honest?
- What can we do to fix it if we forget to be honest?
‘Let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.’ (1 John 13:18)
