School Etiquette Program


We believe manners shape character and are an integral part of success and confidence.


The Australian School of Etiquette presents our school etiquette program across Queensland, NSW and Victoria. We believe manners shape character and are an integral part of success and confidence.  It is further believed that good manners will help young adults make wiser choices when they are faced with negative peer pressure because manners build confidence and increase self-esteem.

Practising good manners takes the focus off “self” and generates respect and goodwill toward others.  Being polite shows we care about one another and understand an individual’s self-worth. Reports indicate that nearly 85% of our career success depends on social skills, manners and presentation.

Our workshops can be delivered as single lessons or a series of workshops. We tailor our programs to meet the needs of the school and students.

Zarife Hardy first came to Bethany College in 2017 to run a Grooming and Deportment class as part of our weekly Recreational Sport program. From this time on, the Grooming and Deportment class has become the most popular activity we offer with students eager to secure a place in this class.

Zarife relates exceptionally well to our year 9 and 10 students and they respond so positively to her gentle manner.  The focus of the classes is to give the students skills in communication, grooming and presentation so they can grow into confident and self-assured young women. The classes are interactive and fun and the professional manner that Zarife brings to the classes, ensures all students are captivated and interested.

Zarife’s classes are praised highly not only by the students, but also parents and members of the College staff.

Thank you so much for working with our students at their recent camp, they expressed that it was a really valuable experience and were very positive about the whole experience – thank you. We asked what our students enjoyed most about the workshop, they replied:

  • Book balancing for deportment
  • Practical table etiquette prompts
  • Learning what to wear and when
  • Learning to sit properly and having success, even after falling off the chair the first few times!
