The Rutherford Virtues Project

At Rutherford we use The Virtues Project  as one of our resources to encourage pro-social and positive behaviour in the school.  The Virtues Project™ is a global grassroots initiative to inspire the practice of virtues in everyday life, sparking a global revolution of kindness, justice, and integrity in more than 100 countries through Facilitators, Master Facilitators, Champions and Virtues Connections.

The Virtues Project empowers individuals to live more authentic meaningful lives, families to raise children of compassion and integrity, educators to create safe, caring, and high performing learning communities, and leaders to encourage excellence and ethics in the work place. It has inspired and mobilized people worldwide to commit acts of service and generosity, to heal violence with virtues.

Each month we emphasize a new virtue and present a virtues-inspired presentation to the school at our monthly assembly. To learn about the Virtues Project click HERE .
