13 What opportunities does your subject have for developing SMSC?
21 22 24 25 Effectively implementing SMSC 29 SMSC provides schools with a unique opportunity to pass on enduring values, develop pupils’ integrity and autonomy and help them to be responsible and caring citizens capable of contributing to the development of a just society. This is the underlying principle of implementation 30 Conclusion 43 Only if the school is a healthy community in which relationships are based on trust and concern for others, in which people value wisdom, truth, justice, courage and other such qualities, and …possess the virtues that enable them to live up to these values, is it likely that pupils will acquire these values for themselves, will deem important the things that are really important and esteem those things that really are worthy of esteem. To learn such important truths is to have one's spiritual, moral, social and cultural development promoted in the best possible way. 2000, Marianne Talbot, Developing SMSC for the school curriculum 44 What opportunities does your subject have for developing SMSC?
