Principal:
Beverly Hills Public School is a NSW Government public school. We have about 460 students in our school, and 87 per cent of those come from a non-English-speaking background. We've always put great emphasis on student welfare programs. The challenge after Premier Iemma's announcement about the Respect and Responsibility program has been to refresh and refocus our programs to meet the needs of our current society.
Student 1:
Respect is knowing how others feel and how you think they would like it if they were treated some way.
Student 2:
Responsibility would probably be acting your age and doing what's asked of you.
Student 3:
In a society and in a school of many different cultures you need respect and responsibility to be kind and trustworthy so that school's a better place.
Student 4:
If people learn how to respect and be responsible, I think the world would be a better place.
