Boy shows cour­tesy

Matamata Chronicle - - Opinion -

On Oc­to­ber 25 I was sit­ting in my ve­hi­cle on Firth St when I no­ticed four Mata­mata Col­lege boys walk­ing along the street chat­ting. At the same time there was an el­derly lady walk­ing on the other side of the street with a walker.

It was then that I no­ticed one of the boys walk on to the road putting his hand up to slow the traf­fic down and went and helped the woman cross the road.

I con­grat­u­late that lad for she was strug­gling to cross the road be­cause of the traf­fic and she could not move very fast.

It’s won­der­ful to know that we have some car­ing young peo­ple in our so­ci­ety as we hear of so many neg­a­tive things hap­pen­ing with our young ones that I re­ally wanted to share this.
