Our Juniors learned how being kind has the power to change lives after taking part in specialist workshops.
Delivered by international charity 52 Lives, the interactive kindness sessions are designed to empower children by helping them realise that the little choices they make every day can make a big difference to the world.
Gad’s students particularly embraced the practical exercise, where they worked together to find different ways to help an imaginary child after hearing their story.
52 Lives aims to change someone’s life every week of the year. It is based on the simple premise that people are good – and lots of good people working together can achieve amazing things.
The School Kindness Project was launched with prize money from the Clarins Most Dynamisante Woman of the Year Award, won by 52 Lives founder Jaime Thurston in 2016 and is now supported by the Big Lottery Community Fund.
At the end of the day, Gad’s children were encouraged to continue thinking about how their choices and actions affect friends and family.
Head of Junior School, Mrs Glynda Cullen was, as always, impressed with and proud of the Junior cohort and now has the tricky task of awarding the charity’s prestigious ‘Outstanding Kindness Award’ to one of many deserving Juniors!
