  • Co-operation: Co-operating, collaborating and leading or following as the situation demands.
  • Creativity: Being creative and imaginative in their thinking and in their approach to problems.
  • Curiosity: Being curious about the nature of learning, about the world, its people and cultures.
  • Empathy: Imagining themselves in another’s situation in order to understand his or her reasoning and emotions so as to be open minded and reflective about the perspectives of others.
  • Enthusiasm: Enjoy learning and willingly putting the effort into the process.
  • Independence: Thinking and acting independently, making their own judgements and being able to defend their judgements.
  • Integrity: Being honest and demonstrating a sense of fairness.
  • Respect: Respecting themselves, others and the world around them.
