SPICES (Quaker Testimonies for Children)
Quaker educators have named six important testimonies (or beliefs) and call them SPICES.
A part of our Quaker approach to education at Wichita Friends School includes exploring these SPICES throughout our school year. As we talk about and practice these values, we learn about each other and about ourselves.
Activities and things we own should not feel like “too much!”
When we don’t agree, talking is better than fighting.
We want to know and tell the truth.
We care for each other.
We are all equally loved by God.
We use God’s gifts with goodness and wisdom.
