Pre-prep Virtues: Friendship
The true definition of friendship is to want the good and the happiness of others, implying trust and affection. Man is a social being and has a need to communicate; to love and be loved. Friendships are made by convers-ing and doing things togetherknowing and under-standing; being interested in their things; being able to sacrifice oneself for another; disinterested generosity. Friendships in pre prep may be born out of casual cir-cumstancessitting at the same desk or because of friendships between parents. Often the names of best friends change but there still exist characteristics proper to true friendships which can develop. This is why it is good to encourage your child to have lots of friends at this age not just one best friend A child‘s understanding of friendship is growing at this age but needs some guidance and teachingit is a form of loving and therefore is always evolving. This is a

process which never reaches per-fection since love is ever expansive . The aim is to always be-come more of a friend rather than just being a friend. Some practical suggestions for reinforcement are -help them keep their word and promises (be reli-able/trustworthy); try to think how I would like to be treated by my friends and do the same e.g. not tell tales or hurt them. Encourage your children to respect the personality and choices of othersletting them choose the game, sharing toys on play dates, giving in on opinions or tastes. Also encourage loyalty, children should not blow hot and cold but stand by friends, re-membering what they like and being interested in their things.

Prep School Virtues: Kindness
Aesop, in his fable of ‘The Lion and the Mouse‘ wrote that ― No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.‖ In the story a lion is about to eat a mouse when the mouse convinces him to be kind and let him go, saying that one day he might be able to return the favour. A few weeks later the lion is captured by hunters and tied up. The mouse gnaws through the ropes and frees the lion. Acts of kindness make life better for everyone. It is not a matter of ex-travagant gestures but of small acts of service or consideration for others. We help our children in this first by our example. We have to teach them to be kind by being kind, offering to
help others in the familyboth chil-dren and adultswhen they need something, even if we are tired or busy with other things. Through the adults around us, children will learn to spot when someone has a need and be ready and willing to help them. Another important element of kindness is that of listening. There are some people children will find more difficult to listen to - elderly relatives or younger siblings, some-one who is a always negative or who talks too much. The virtue of kindness lies in treating those peo-ple with the respect and understand-ing that we would give to others.
Prep School Virtue: Courage (Fortitude)
If you ask children for examples of bravery they will provide many, from soldiers and firefighters to historical figures and leaders. These are all ex-amples of ‗courage under fire‘ but where do they acquire the courage they need for the moments they need it. They do this through the acquisi-tion of the virtue of fortitude. This virtue encourages us to overcome what we feel like in order to do what is needed. This is something that we need all the timeto do our work well, to finish the job that was excit-ing at the beginning but is now just a burden, to spend quality time with our family after a hard day at work.
For children, fortitude can be lived in very specific areasfollowing a clear timetable at home, finishing our homework well even if we find the topic difficult or the subject less appealing. When they face chal-lenges, encourage them to find and carry out their own solutionsresisting the urge to solve their problems for them. As they get older, children will need to be coura-geous to resist peer pres-sure in its various forms, to prioritise schoolwork and family life over more attractive distractions and
TARGETS FOR KINDNESS To be ready to help others  as I would like to be helped. To notice when other  people are sad or need help. To listen to people when  they need someone to talk  to.
Trinity Term 2011
to pick themselves up after defeats and problems. Courage is less about toughness and more about determinationto keep trying, whatever the internal and external obstacles.
TARGETS FOR COURAGE
To do what I should, even if I don‘t feel like it.To do what I know I should, even if other peo-ple try to make me behave differently To be brave when I am hurt or afraid.
