LI. To use manners and show respect to adults and visitors.
This weeks PB4L lesson was about using manners towards adults and visitors.
Using manners is important because it allows others to treat you the way you want to be treated, and allows others to build their confidence by talking to the teachers, but it also shows the respect value which is important at our school.
It is important to show respect to the adults and visitors since it could show them that they welcomed to the school. There are many expected ways we can be respectful to adults/visitors. You can hold doors open for adults as a way of showing your respect to them. Using appropriate language around visitors and adults should be automatic. Some ways to speak formally in front of adults is to use manners although you should always use manners at all times. When a visitor is speaking, always make sure to listen and look at them to prove that you are listening to them.
This activity was important for all of us because sometimes we forget and we need to remind ourselves to do the right thing.
