Teachers have incorporated kindness into their lessons using the resources and activities in Kindness UK’s school booklet ‘Kindness Pack for Secondary Schools; Promoting, Sharing and Uniting Kindness’. The kindness demonstrated at St Columba’s is exemplary. Projects included a Kindness Week to celebrate kindness on a large scale and embraced the subject of kindness in every classroom. Activities included; visit to local residential home, ‘save the earth race’, short story competition kindness song survey, fair-trade projects, creating endangered species pamphlets, kindness in faith & culture, compliment chain, ‘Power down day’, shortbread gift bags for friends & family, selling cakes for charity, kindness translations, making t-shirts, graffiti & street-art, sustainability project, kindness posters and many more!

We highly commend the way the whole school has embraced the value of kindness; it is an inspiration to others.
