My Vision for Schools
Since the release of my book ‘Kindness Matters’ in 2017, I have been on a mission to “scatter seeds with good deeds”. I’ve been working my little socks off with just one goal in my mind.
My goal is for November to become the official month of Kindness, in which every school in the United Kingdom will take part collectively to complete The Kindness Matters 30-day challenge. I mean, come on, how good is that?
Together, we can create a tsunami of kindness throughout the UK. Just imagine how much kindness we could share.
What do you think is stopping us from making this happen?
Nothing! Nothing at all is the answer. I’ll tell you why.
I believe it is not cool, for any pupil to bully other pupils, to use inappropriate language with pupils and teaching staff, or to hurt pupils and staff mentally, physically or emotionally. Until pupils take ownership and 100% responsibility for their actions and realise that kindness is a CHOICE, they are going to keep repeating this process – hurting themselves and others as a result of their efforts.
At the end of the day; “all behaviour is learnt behaviour”, and if we can learn to hurt each other, we can learn to be kind to one other because kindness is an innate part of who we are as human beings and flows more effectively.
I can testify that by helping your pupils gain a more in-depth understanding that kindness is a choice, they can begin the daily journey to understand that they can become the kindness they want to see in the world. They are the future, and it is their choices here, and now that will shape the future generations.
With pupils and staff committing to The Kindness Matters 30-day Challenge and experiencing the transformation for themselves, they will make your school a kinder place.
Get in touch now so your pupils and staff can put more kindness into their school and the world.
