4. Education for Peace: Conflict and its resolution in different spheres, problem of violence, respect for cultural diversity, values for living in harmony with people and nature, child rights, and sustainable development.

5. Psycho-social Development of Children: Development of self, relationships and social skills, understanding and cognitive skills, communication skills, leadership, decision making, and coping with stress.
