We are Kind
We celebrated our first Kindness Week at Stratford National School this year. We participated in lots of fun and friendly activities. We learned a lovely song about kindness and had a special assembly to sing it together. We had a no uniform day and raised €320 for Focus Ireland. We all created lovely pictures depicting kindness, and made a link chain for a whole school display, to show that we are all connected together and kindness makes the world a more beautiful place.
We also did lots of random acts of kindness amongst our different classes, such as the senior classes inviting the junior classes to go to the park, and the junior classes asking whether the senior classes could have a night off homework or some extra yard time. Some classes sang songs for other classes and kindly gave stickers to each other. Some classes kept kindness diaries. We also got to 'walk a mile with a smile' with partners from different classes.
We were all very happy to focus on kindness throughout this special week, and to continue celebrating kindness each and every day at our lovely Stratford National School.
