Respect was a focus this week at assembly. It is always a focus in boarding. It is expected that all of the girls treat each other with respect, treat the staff with respect, and our school and personal property with respect. This is an ongoing process as we educate girls as to how that looks.
At Girls Grammar we acknowledge the toll disrespect and meanness take on us through RUOK? day and Do It For Dolly Day. They are good reminders for us but being respectful and kind needs to be lived every day. We encourage our girls to be kind, be grateful and respectful. It is an ongoing push by our boarding staff with the support by our families at home. Simple things like being thankful and respectful of activities and the staff and students who run and supervise them is vital.
Last weekend the senior girls enjoyed a social with seniors from St Brendan’s College. It was appreciated by those that organised the social when girls thanked staff and helped pack up after the event. As current and aspiring leaders, it is important that the girls acknowledge that successful events such as this will continue to happen when the girls are grateful, thankful and help us.
