Dear Parents

Dear Parents
  • We would like to remind you that such magic words as 'Hello', 'Please', 'You're welcome', 'Excuse me' and 'Thank you' are first learnt at home.
  • It's also at home that children learn to be honest, punctual and hard-working, and to have empathy with friends and respect for teachers.
  • It's at home where they learn to stay clean, not to speak with their mouths full, and how to dispose of rubbish.
  • At home they learn to behave properly, to take care of their things, and not to assault other people.
  • Here at school, on the other hand, we instruct them in language, mathematics, history, geography, physics, science, and sport. We only reinforce the education the parents give them at home.


This poster was first published by a school in Portugal and has since spread all over Europe - see here. I think it should be given to every parent and hung on every classroom wall in Australia.
