School of Value Award
Every year, the Board of the National Values Development Programme names a School of Values Education and a Preschool of Values Education.
Lümanda Põhikool (Lümanda Basic School): School of Value Education 2014
Rannamõisa Lasteaed (Rannamõisa Kindergarten): Preschool of Value Education 2014
Every winner receives the award associated with the title — a dolomite cup that the winner keeps for a year and then passes on to the next year’s winner. The tree that is planted in the cup is transplanted at the winning school or preschool and thus remains there permanently.
When we talk about values education, we talk about love, caring, support and growth. Every child needs supportive environment to grow healthy and happy and so does every tree. Therefore, we decided to give a tree to each winning school and preschool in recognition of their efforts to provide an exceptional environment for the development of values in young people. Above all, we wish to acknowledge the will and the skills that enable to create the environment that supports the development of children as well-rounded persons. At the same time, we wish to emphasise the role of cooperation – relying on each other at school and beyond. For that reason, this tree is presented in a dolomite cup that is passed from school to school every year.
The School of Values Education awards were given for the first time at the values education conference organised in December 2009 by the Centre for Ethics of the University of Tartu.
