School Kindness Challenge
ACTS has worked with Queens Park High School to run a Kindness Awareness and Challenge day. Pupils from year 7,8 and 9 spent a morning thinking and learning about kindness. Each form were then challenged to come up with an act of kindness they would do with a small amount of cash. Students and ACTS trustees judged, and the winners were funded the money to carry out their ideas:
Free fruit and water on a hot day in the summer
Carols and Cakes for local elderly people worth the hope of building more permanent relationships within the school community
Plans to plant and change the outdoor area in the spring to give students somewhere else to sit.
