Truth – Always tell the truth.
Justice – Always stand up for what is right. If you see someone doing something wrong, stop them or tell an adult.
Harmony – We breathe because trees give us oxygen. Everything on earth is in harmony. Take care of nature.
Balance – Don’t eat too much or watch too much TV. Always have balance.
Order – Respect your parents. Respect your elders. One day, you will be an adult and you will want to be respected too.
Reciprocity – Be nice to people and make friends with people who are also nice to you.
Propriety – If you are at school, know that it is time to learn, not play. Be on your best behavior everywhere you go.
