Staff and students sign Charter for Compassion

 Permanent link

Today, during period 1 at school, the staff and students signed the Charter for Compassion. It was read aloud in each homeroom class. Students and staff were invited to sign it.

The Charter is below.


Charter for Compassion
Join a global movement to bring compassion to our schools!

We—the students, teachers, staff, and parents of   CWDHS declare our shared commitment to the following principles, and pledge to hold ourselves and one another accountable to their realization.

We recognize that every person shares a common humanity capable both of happiness and suffering.  We pledge in our words and actions to treat everyone in this school community as we would wish to be treated, to help those around us who are in need, and to make amends when we cause another pain.

We recognize that we are a school with different abilities, body sizes, races, religions, classes, gender identities and sexual orientations.  We pledge to step into the shoes of others and see how things look from their point of view, especially when we disagree or find ourselves in conflict.   

We recognize that intolerance and hatred cause suffering and that that when we stand by doing nothing, or laugh or post comments online when others bully, we contribute to the problem.  We pledge to stand up to bullying and make this a school where everyone belongs.

In signing, we commit to practice the values in this Charter within our school community; in our daily interactions, whether teacher-to-teacher, teacher-to-student, or student-to-student; and in the projects we undertake within our community and in the world.
