Moral education will help nation

I applaud the decision described in Pupils to be given moral education (July 28).

This is a great move. Children who are taught the essential values of life – including ethics, personal and community growth, culture and heritage, civic education, and rights and responsibilities – from a young age will become engaged and involved with the realities of daily life.

A sense of attachment and belonging will grow in them as these values are instilled and as they learn more about them on a regular basis.

I suggest that they also include an element of health, safety and environment education into the curriculum.

Discipline in these three areas will help produce a committed generation who will be a source of pride for their nation and make their leaders’ vision a reality.
