What does respect mean to you? Why is it important? How can we show respect towards others? How should we treat people when we respect them? If we respect others, do you think they will respect us in return? What does respect not mean? All of these questions were posed to the learners and we had some very insightful responses.
The Grade 4’s, 5’s, 6’s and 7’s watched a video called Start The Ripple. This video shows children how respecting others actually starts a ripple and effects everyone else around them. The video also details how disrespecting others can be detrimental to one’s life situation and can cause devastating events.
Everyone is unique and special in their own way. We must not judge people by the way they look as what is inside is important. We all have different likes and dislikes. If we were all the same then the world would be a very boring place. By being unique we contribute to the vastness and greatness of this colourful world we live in. The children could work in groups to illustrate their thoughts around respect. Some of the posters are up in the library so come and have a look.
