Task 4:

Class Discussion

  • After watching the various video clips, reading the news articles and listening to the PM’s speech, What is YOUR idea of COURTESY?


  • The standard acceptable meaning of politeness may have three dimensions:

    (1) polite as civil or socially correct,

    (2) polite as kind or friendly,

    (3) polite as tactful or diplomatic.

  • In the opinion of some scholars, politeness is a matter of social adequacy.


  • The National Courtesy Campaign was launched in 1979.

  • Objective:

    “We must teach children and adults to be courteous to each other. We want to be courteous because life will be better for all.” (PM Mr Lee Kuan Yew at the launch of the National Courtesy campaign, 1979)

    * Refer to the Additional Reading Article 2 on Courtesy Campaign.

Task 5:

Class Discussion

  • Let’s think of ways to be courteous towards:

    - Family members

    - Friends

    - Teachers

    - Strangers

    Provide examples.


Task 6:

  • We have looked at how to be courteous as a Singaporean, family member, friend and even stranger.

  • Let’s now think about how we would show courtesy as a Nan Huarian.


  • In groups of five, design a simple poster on one of our school values, ‘Courtesy’.

  • Your poster must include a logo and a slogan.

  • Your logo and slogan must focus the School Mission: To nurture cultured students.

  • The poster will be your class poster reflecting that courtesy is one of your class values.




Vote for the best poster and the best slogan which represents your class best.

Put up all the posters and mark the voted one with a star.


Task 7:

On your handout, pledge to carry out three acts of kindness towards three varied (relationship to you, gender, age, etc.) people over the course of the week.

Ensure you carry them out!


Learning points:

Nan Huarians show courtesy by:

  • Respecting school rules.

  • Respecting the privacy of other people.

  • Not offending the people around them.

  • Greeting their school leaders, teachers, peers and non-teaching staff with respect.

  • Using a polite tone at all times.

  • Being kind, humble and sincere.
