1 Kindness has an amazing ability to increase happiness, self-esteem and optimism, improve mental and physical wellbeing, lower stress and anxiety levels, create better social, emotional and academic outcomes, and reduce bullying in schools and within the community.
Sounds good, doesn’t it!
That’s because kindness is a natural remedy for a multitude of ailments!
Given this impressive list of benefits, it stands to reason that kind children are happy children without the feels of insecurities that can initiate bullying behaviour.
Our primary school kindness curriculum is a heart centred program that teaches children to be givers in a world where they’re often conditioned to take.
With a focus on changing cultures in schools, it has gained International attention as a positive alternative to traditional anti-bullying programs that promotes a healthy outlook at an early age by building an armour of goodness that nurtures happy, positive, well rounded individual who care for others.
We aim to inspire generational change with lessons and activities for the classroom, home and community to take kindness outside the school gate.
A need for change within school communities is evident, so it’s time to rethink our approach and stop the negative talk about bullying. Blaming and shaming aren’t the answer and just asking children to be kind to their peers isn’t enough to stop anti-social behaviour. Students need to be shown how to be a good friend with on-going lessons and activities that allow them to feel the positive emotions that make kindness a natural and instinctive part of life.
Our community project motivates people to make changes in their lives to enable growth through positivity, an awareness of self, compassion for others and the addictive feel good emotions that being kind generates.
