Social Emotional Learning – Random Acts of Kindness
Random acts of kindness are non-premeditated, inconsistent acts designed to offer kindness towards the outside world.
As members of any community, we can easily get caught up in the hustle and bustle of everyday life that we often forget to think of others.
Through the use of our Social Emotional Learning program (including Second Step and Circle Time Sessions) we explicitly teach our boys the importance of and skills for empathy, emotion management and problem solving so that our boys can become men of substance who contribute positively to society.
A small gesture of kindness can make someone else’s entire day and it can also make you feel even better as many of our boys have learnt through the picture book ‘How full is your bucket? for kids’ written by Tom Rath and Mary Reckmeyer.
So why not spread the kindness and try a random act of kindness today?
This poster contains some ideas to get you started and this TED talk provides an interesting insight into the concept of random acts of kindness:
We hope that the holiday period provides the boys with a restful break and many valuable opportunities to authentically undertake random acts of kindness!
