They equip their students with values in their growing up years.
That is one of the goals of Childlink Learning Center and Childlink High School Inc., which was recognized as the first School of Character in the Visayas Region, as they move to continue to give quality education to their students.
This award was given in 2016 by the Character Education Partnership, a nonprofit, nonpartisan, and a nonsectarian coalition of organizations and individuals committed to fostering effective character education in the country.
Ma. Theresa Tio, founder and school directress of Childlink, says that she feels honored after Childlink was awarded as the first School of Character in the Visayas.
“We applied for the organization, and the organization saw how the school is committed on the character formation of students,” says Tio.
“Here at Childlink, we are very intense in character education and we make use of it as a tool to teach students,” says Tio, noting that the key to becoming a successful individual is to a good character.
Childlink as a school of character has developing its students’ character as the forefront of the school’s curriculum.
“A student with a good character is what the world needs,” she says.
So, it is the school’s mission to develop proactive learners by equipping them with values in their growing up years.
As the school inculcates these values in the students, Tio believes once they walk out from the comforts of the school, they will grow up to be a more sensitive individual.
“Because I believe that if a student has a good character, he or she will be conscientious of his/her duties (in) working for the betterment of the local and global community,” says Tio.
