Being polite is long overdue

My neighbour came to see me to explain something she had seen on BBC’s Newsround programme.

Teenagers at a college learning decorum, etiquette, dress sense and good manners.

Apparently the young scholars had enjoyed the experience – long overdue.

If you respect other members of the public then they will return the compliment.

A code of polite behaviour in society does not take much.

The public would like this rolled out to all primary, secondary and college education centres, if it is not already in place.
