From the 11th – 15th November the whole school celebrated our annual ‘Cool to be kind week’. During the week, each class carried out random acts of kindness in and around our school community. This included displaying positive messages around the school building, posting messages in the community as well as Year 4 visiting the local police station. The children absolutely loved visiting the police, as well as having the opportunity to interview the town Mayor. The police said that they were overwhelmed with our generosity as people are rarely kind to them nor do they think to stop and say thank you.
The Reception children hung smiley faces around school and the local community, to put a smile on people’s faces! This has resulted in one kind member of the public, emailing Mrs Stace to see how he and his local business can support the school with a financial project.
Well done to all of the children who also carried out an act of kindness as part of their homework, spreading a little happiness in their homes and across the town.
During the week, we also talked to the children about the importance of ‘change starts with us’ which was the focus of this year’s Anti-Bullying week.
