Next week is Anti-Bullying Week. We’d like to call it Pro-Compassion Week. Our school-wide focus continues to be acting with kindness and compassion.
In September, Chris Vollum’s on-line presentation encouraged students to act with integrity. To apply their values before they post a message by checking: does it represent who they are and how they want to be known; is it kind; is it compassionate; is it true.
In October, Fr. Brian Kerr encouraged students to ‘let their light shine with kindness’, especially to those in need.
This month, we take a closer look at what acting with kindness and compassion ‘looks like’ in our daily interactions. We are introducing two school-wide initiatives.
- ‘Reach Out & SMILE’ initiative. SMILE is an acronym for: Say hello, Mend friendships; Invite, Listen, and Express appreciation. The attached flyer provides some of the examples that classes will be focusing on.
- We will be spread good news during morning announcements by recognizing students who were “Caught Doing Good”.
