How Primary School Can Instil Christian Principles in Children

Many parents decide to send their children to Christian schools as these tend to focus on value based and faith led education. A learning environment such as this can give children a deeper understanding of ethics and values from a young age.

When you send your child to a Christian primary school Brisbane, they will be taught the curriculum from a Christian perspective. Some of the subjects that can be taught thus are language, arts, social studies etc. Even science can be taught from a Christian perspective without distorting facts. There can be discussions on morals and ethics during the lessons so that students can ask questions and clarify their concerns. Some of the principles that will be given prominence in a Christian school are compassion, stewardship, forgiveness and love. These principles will be taught to children through bible stories and prayer. The teachers can provide many examples of how these values can be adapted to their daily lives. The students will also see their teachers as role models; they will be able to see how these values inform the actions of the teacher.
