At NESS, we expect all students to abide by the philosophy that we are all good people. But what does this mean in real life? Some examples to show this are:
- Saying hello or smiling when you first encounter someone.
- Being helpful by opening a door, picking up something that has been dropped, taking care of other people’s belongings, taking care of your own belongings.
- Using your WITS in moments of conflict (Walk away; Ignore; Talk it out; Seek help)
- Remembering that rude, loud or mean actions often reflect that a person is struggling inside. Take the time to be patient and help the person work it out by using your own WITS.
