Learn how to be socially and culturally appropriate in a global society. Delve into how values, beliefs, customs and traditions drive the socialisation of society. The right manners to meet anyone!
We will build on the globally recognised Virtues Programme and discover what values are important to 21st Century New Zealanders. We will investigate customs, manners, values and beliefs which allow people to be socially appropriate global citizens.
Meeting people from different cultures, backgrounds and nationalities is becoming common place in the Queenstown area. Are our children ready to embrace the chance to develop understanding of global differences but more importantly similarities, to make friendships and connections?
