APRIL Attribute is RESPECT.

WHAT IS RESPECT?

I will treat myself and others with consideration, high regard, courtesy and dignity.

I WILL:

•   Be polite, dignified, honourable and positive in my dealings

with others.

•   Honour people’s rights.

•   Treat other people’s belongings, the environment and the world around us with due consideration.

•   Demonstrate respect for myself by behaving in the above manner.


RESPECT is when you show good manners, pay attention; treat others as you would like to be treated.

"Respect is a two-way street, if you want to get it; you've got to give it.”

— R. G. Risch
