- Exploring and encouraging students own Weltanschauung or ‘philosophy of life’ – the context or backdrop which enriches our lives and gives it both meaning and purpose.
- Understanding the concept of ‘service’ – quantifying our own happiness and well-being in terms of the happiness and well-being of others; and exploring the ways in which we can contribute to this.
- Recognising the connection between our physical and mental life and developing healthy approaches to both.
- Considering the extent to which we have freedom and responsibility to make choices in our lives.
- Encouraging a positive self-image by reflecting, accepting and embracing our unique individuality.
