JUNE Attribute is HONESTY.


I will be sincere, trustworthy and truthful.

HONESTY is when you commit to being true to yourself and others.


  • speak the truth with kindness and caring.
  • be trustworthy, so people know they can depend on me.
  • be sincere. There is no difference between what I say and do and what I believe in my heart.

“If you tell the truth you don't have to remember anything. ”

~Mark Twain

What is a Character Community?

A Character Community is one in which members of the community work together to nurture positive character attributes.

It requires a shift in thinking and a focus on attitudes and behaviours that lead to achievement and success.

Character is important

Good character makes a positive difference in our families, schools, businesses and neighbourhoods by acting as a catalyst for positive change and citizen engagement.

A Character Community attracts people and businesses of character and acts as a driver for economic growth and prosperity.

The Character Community encourages businesses to:

  • Identify what the business stands for
  • Establish ethical business practices
  • Emphasize customer-service
  • Foster strong Character employees
  • Develop business leaders of Character
  • Give back to their community
