Last week our school focus was on the value of 'Friendliness'. Being friendly to others is always a challenge especially when other people are not friendly to us. Being friendly helps people feel like they are cared for and that they belong. When thing are going well it is great to celebrate with friends and friendly people. When things go bad it is good to have friendly people around us to support us. These are the kinds of messages we share with our students.
- Friendly people take an interest in other people.
- Friendly people make others feel welcome.
- Friendly people happily share time, ideas, feelings and belongings with others.
- Friendliness is a cure for loneliness.
