Virtue of the fortnight - Cooperation

This fortnight's virtue is Cooperation.


Is working together for the good of everyone. It is a willingness to respect others and follow rules which keep everyone safe and happy. Cooperation is being helpful to one another, sharing the load. It is joining others in order to do something that can not be done alone




Without cooperation, people disturb others. They don’t care about the rules, and they don’t seem to care about others. When we work together, we can often accomplish more than each of us could do alone. When we cooperate we can do great things.


Being cooperative is being willing to go along in order to get along. We are respectful of the rules. We consider other people’s needs. We look for ways to be helpful, and we ask for help when we need it. Cooperation helps us bring together the ideas of many so that a new idea can come to light. Working together, we can make any place a safe and happy one.




You are practising Cooperation when you……

  •  Work well with others
  • Freely offer your help and ideas
  • Follow the rules
  • Do your part to keep a safe, happy environment
  • When you disagree, do it peacefully
  • Ask for help when you need it


“We must help one another, it is the law of nature.”

French Proverb



Asking for help does not mean that we are weak or incompetent. It usually indicates an advanced level of honesty and intelligence.” Anne Wilson Schaef

“Cooperation is doing with a smile what you have to do anyway.”
