Etiquette and Social Skills Training

On Wednesday 4th December, Kirkby High School welcomed Belinda Alexander, otherwise known as ‘The Mentor of Modern Manners". Belinda’s Etiquette and Social Skills session for Year 10 and 11 School Leaders, was the first in their development programme, which will run over this academic year. Pupils learnt the importance of body language, deportment and conversational skills, and then practiced each through ‘role play’ situations. It was a pleasure to see pupils literally grow in stature as they moved confidently and overcame nerves when learning how to enter a room and greet each other with a firm handshake whilst maintaining eye contact and introducing themselves.
