Hi, I'm Tim.
I'm Natalie.
And I'm Alex from Caringbah High.
Respect and responsibility – two simple words.
But what do they really mean?
Today we hit the streets to find out.
Natalie (interviewing passers-by):
What do you think respect and responsibility are?
Middle-aged man:
Respect for your elders.
Woman at shop:
Respect for your peers.
Young man:
For anyone really, I suppose, anyone you want to respect, or you want the respect of.
Middle-aged woman:
Having empathy for other people.
Surfie 1:
How you want people to treat you.
Surfie 2:
Respect for how they live their life – everyone's different.
Natalie (to David Simmons):
How did your time at school shape you into the person you are today?
David Simmons:
At school I had a big group of friends, at football practice as well, and it just taught me about respecting them and respecting their ideas, and who they were. Also I think my teachers played a big role in giving us challenging ideas, and different ideas, and you sort of had to decide where you stood on certain values and certain beliefs.
... and responsibility?
Middle-aged man:
Making sure I look after my kids.
Young woman:
Taking ownership for your own behaviour, your own actions, your thoughts, your feelings.
Surfie 1:
Doing the right thing.
Young man:
Like, I got a dog now - my girlfriend always told me you need responsibilities, so I got myself a dog. That's my responsibility.
