Your choices are your responsibility

Class Pledge

If I borrow it Iíll bring it back,
If I use it Iíll put it away.

If I open it Iíll close it,
If I turn it on Iíll turn it off.

If I make a mess Iíll tidy it,
If I did it Iíll own up to it.

If I hurt someone Iíll apologise,
If I want friends Iíll be a friend.

If I start it Iíll finish it,
If I make a mistake Iíll learn from it.

If I donít understand Iíll ask for help,
If I want to improve Iíll ask where to next?

And if I want to be treated well Iíll treat others the same way.
