Moral, Civic and National Education

 

 

 

* Together, We fight the Virus

Values education is an essential element of the school curriculum. In the fight against the virus together, maintaining good personal and environmental hygiene apart, let us continue to instil in students positive values and attitudes, including the effective and ethical use of information technology (e.g. not forwarding unsubstantiated messages to others), being responsible to the community and society, as well as caring for others.

 

Moral, Civic and National Education Section has designed related learning and teaching resources in Chinese for primary and secondary school teachers’ deployment. Click to download . (Related resources can also be downloaded  from the webpage of Novel Coronavirus related Learning and Teaching Resources).  In addition, we have launched ‘My Pledge to Act’ instant messaging stickers: ‘Together, We Fight the Virus’ series to encourage one another to stay positive in facing the threat of Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19). Click to download.

Moral, Civic and National Education is an essential element of whole-person education which aims at fostering students' positive values and attitudes through the learning and teaching of various Key Learning Areas/subjects and the provision of relevant learning experiences. On this ground, it is to develop students' ability to identify the values embedded, analyse objectively and make reasonable judgement in different issues they may encounter at different developmental stages so that they could take proper action to deal with the challenges in their future life.

 

Schools could promote Moral and Civic Education through nurturing in their students the seven priority values and attitudes: “Perseverance”, “Respect for Others”, “Responsibility”, “National Identity”, “Commitment”, “Integrity” and “Care for Others”.

 

Taking cultivation of positive values and attitudes as the direction, schools should make use of everyday life events to strengthen the coordination of learning activities, and enhance the connection, among various cross-curricular domains in values education, including moral and ethical education, civic education, Basic Law education, human rights education, national education, anti-drug education, life education, sex education, education for sustainable development, etc. so as to provide students with all-round learning experience conducive to their whole-person development.
