It’s a kind of implicit knowledge that is invaluable when shared.

Classic stories often contain rich explorations of character and virtues. These resources, loved by children and adults alike, have been developed into the Knightly Virtues educational program at the Jubilee Centre for Character and Virtues. The program offers materials to help nine- to eleven-year-olds enjoy tales such as those of King Arthur and Don Quixote while learning about virtues, including gratitude, honesty, and humility, as well as to think about their own virtues of character.
