Courtesy Campaign Launch
Ms. Clarisse Arcadio, Grade 7 English Teacher
Courtesy means treating others in the same upbeat, respectful, and professional way we want to be treated ourselves. One of the virtues that the school wants to instill in its students is the value of courtesy as a part of character formation. This is why the Courtesy Campaign was launched during the Grade School General Assembly with the theme “I am a Xaverian! I am Courteous! Upright in word and deed.” This campaign aims to heighten the school community’s awareness on courtesy, to come up with follow-up activities that will give support to the campaign, and to challenge the Xavier School community to commit themselves to promote and do acts of courtesy and politeness at all times.
The opening remarks of the launch were delivered by Mrs. Estrella Nabua, the Assistant Principal for the Intermediate Level. She was followed by Ms. Clarisse Arcadio, the Head of the Courtesy Campaign Committee. Ms. Arcadio introduced the mechanics of the different activities lined-up for the campaign such as the Courtesy Coupons, the Poster-Making Contest, and the Guest Speakers during Monday Assemblies. An upbeat dance number from XREP immediately followed. They danced to the song “Respect” by Aretha Franklin, while waving boards with words such as courtesy, respect, good manners, politeness, and kindness. The short program ended with a word of commitment from a grade five boy, John Kua.
Being courteous is something that everyone should practice and be proud of. With this campaign, it is hoped that the members of the Xavier community, especially the students, will exemplify courteousness and consider it to be one step towards being a complete Man for Others.
