At 8:50 we are having a school wide Pink Day assembly and the focus will be on kindness and the boomerang affect. This is where kindness eventually makes it back to the person who starts it.
During our assembly we will show examples of simple but kind gestures that have great affect. Mr. Tetrault from the Royal Bank at the corner of Collegiate and Portage will also speak to our kids about the many kind things that can be done and how easy it is to do.
After the assembly each child at GWMS will have the opportunity to be kind to someone in our school or community. Their words will be shared on this blog later today. Our presentation will also be posted on this blog later today.
Here is a great article about the positive affects on focusing on and teaching kindness. http://www.teachthought.com/teaching/8-reasons-for-teaching-kindness-in-schools/
Looking forward to a great day!
