IDEAL - Acting with Respect

By Belinda Hirst | Posted: Friday November 8, 2019

As we are well into our final term for the year, I find myself talking more and more to others about one of our key values - Acting with RESPECT. It's an unspoken way of communication which builds unshaken and strong relations between people.

It is important to treat others with respect because beingrespectful towards people is a key aspect of life in order to form and maintain positive relationships. When a person shows respect for someone, then it means that the person has some value for him. If you treat people with kindness, they will be kind back.

Tips for Acting with Respect

  • Treat staff and students with courtesy, politeness, manners and kindness.
  • Talk to others using appropriate language at all times.
  • Listen to what others have to say.
  • Demonstrate our school IDEAL values and pride in being at OIS.
