Iím promoting TED, treating everyone equally for a safe and friendly environment for our school. A fortnight ago we talked about setting goals to map the pathways in our lives. To-dayís talk is about apologizing effectively.† Students often visit student services for mediation of disputes and one or both students apologise to solve the problem.† Hereís how to do it.
A good apology
gives the other student respect and when sincere, itís
a new beginning that requires honesty, forgiveness and courage.
Now for fun I need a volunteer.
Remember, a real apology says what happened, why and its possible effects. It says how youíll fix the problem and that youíre sorry.† Apologising well gives a new beginning, making this school a safe and friendly place.
