Children’s University – Kindness Challenge
CUWA has posted a Kindness Challenge on their website. Here are the details:
“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel” Maya Angelou
Kindness helps us to feel like we matter (and we do!). It helps us to feel like we belong to a community and something larger than ourselves. Kindness can make you laugh, turn a bad day into a good one, and even save a life! Being kind makes the world a better place – which is why today, we are encouraging you to think about different ways you can be kind to other people!
It’s easy to be kind. If you see someone who is on their own, ask if they are okay. Smile and say hello to everyone you walk past today. Write a positive, encouraging note and stick it to someone’s school bag. Make a new friend or connect with an old one you haven’t spoken to in a while. Help someone in class with their work. Or why not do the dishes at home without being asked? There are so many things you can do!
A key part of kindness is being able to use empathy to imagine what someone else might be thinking or feeling. For example, teaching is a rewarding job, but it can be really hard sometimes too. Teachers have loads of responsibility and often work late into the night marking assignments and planning lessons for their students. Our challenge today is to design and deliver a card to a teacher or staff member in your school who you think could use a little kindness. Write five things in your card that you appreciate about them. Use lots of different colours and let your imagination run wild!
I would love to see all the SSS students take part in this challenge – however, if you are part of CUWA and take up this challenge, be sure to take a photo of your card before you send it and earn 1 hour in your learning passport.
Next passport signing session will be on Tuesday 10 May from 8.15am in the Primary Forum. We will also be taking some photo’s on this day. It would be great to include everyone, so please come along even if you don’t need your passport stamped this week.
OSHClub works in partnership with your school to provide Outside School Hours Care (OSHC) services. At OSHClub, children enjoy a fun learning experience. From exciting activities and healthy, nutritious food, to caring, motivated team members, you can be sure your child is safe and has lots of fun, before or after school.
