    Good Manners Workshop
    February 2018   ...News & Events

    Date: 19th February’18

                                           WORKSHOP: GOOD MANNERS

                            ‘Good manners open the door that education cannot.’

    Manners are rules of behavior which change with time and vary from culture to culture. Good manners are very necessary to have a person in order to live a happy, disciplined and peaceful life as well as get success in any field. They also convey a sense of respect for the sensibilities of other people and help us to develop good habits. To promote societal concord amongst our little ones, a workshop on ‘Good Manners’ was organized on 19th February 2018 for grade 1 students wherein their educators laid stress on respecting everyone and using magic words like Please, Thank you, Sorry. The session was started with watching a video ‘Back to school’ followed by discussions in which each and every student participated ardently and learnt how to behave with others. Some real-life situations were also shared with them which helped to make the concept more understandable. They were also given some tokens of appreciation like stars, smileys, and small gifts.
