School sent out poster asking parents to teach their children manners.


A school has sent a poster out asking parents to teach their children manners.

The question of what exactly are a School’s responsibilities and where do they begin and end? Is often asked. What constitutes a parents responsibilities and a schools responsibilities.

One school has decided to clarify the matter and their poster is now spreading like wildfire when it was shared on Facebook.

The message which is simple but effective highlights five key points which the school say should be managed by parents.

To all parents

We would like to remind you that magic words such as hello and please, you’re welcome, I’m sorry and thank you, all begin to be learned at home.

It is also at home that children learn to be honest, to be on time,diligent,show friends their sympathy,as well as show utmost respect for their elders and all teachers.

Home is where they learn to be clean, not talk with their mouths full, and how and where to properly dispose of rubbish.

Home is also where they learn to be organised, to take good care of their belongings and that it’s not ok  to touch others.

Here at school on the other hand, we teach language,maths, history, geography, physics, sciences, and physical education. We only reinforce the education that children get at home from their parents.


Do you think all schools should be sending this out to parents?
