Civil Responsibilities and Education

After making such an investment in building the infrastructure and facilities, the school must make efforts to enhance their life by teaching students the proper use and care of the facilities. This user education should include attitude-change in the users, and the care of the facilities. The school's policy on user education should strive to apply knowledge, skills, values and attitude in the proper use of the facilities. There should be timely monitoring, and reminders served to all school members until the practices and principles of the user education take root. The head, teachers, support staff and senior students must lead in the proper use and handling of the facilities.

Civic sense is the main ingredient of user education. The school staffs, especially the teachers, must think, say and act in line with the principles of user education.
Teach students that the school facilities are;
  • Common property and use them carefully so that other can also benefit from them.
  • The facilities should be handed over to the next group of students in the form they have been first provided.

Make students, teachers and other staff members responsible for the school properties such as sport equipment, culture items, class rooms, furniture, library books, textbooks, science laboratory equipments, toilets and washrooms. These facilities would last much longer if handled with care and respect. Make students realize that tremendous financial resources that have gone into acquiring these facilities, and that their peers in less fortunate schools in other parts of the world do not have such facilities.

Induce positive behavioral change in the students and staff for effective and prudent use of the facilities. From time to time; explain the Dos and Don'ts in the use of the facilities. For Example while in the class rooms, people should not throw objects around or climb on the desks and benches that could damage the classroom, the furniture, etc. Staff and the students must be encouraged to explore innovative ideas for better use, resourcefulness and creation of ways of usage as well as additional facilities within their capacities.
