Students learn to be kind and caring

A SIMPLE act of kindness can make someone day, something St John's Catholic School student's have been learning.

The students walked the streets on Thursday to give random acts of kindness to the town's business people.

"We have been learning about the character strengths of kindness and love,” students said.

"We have learnt that random acts of kindness can help us be better people and can help others feel really great too.”

They have also been learning about bucket fillers, which means you can fill a bucket by making someone feel great by helping them, being kind or including them.

"When you fill someone's bucket, you fill your own too,” the students said.

"So we wanted to show how we can be kind, to spread love and to fill the buckets of businesses around town.”

The students handed out handmade flowers with words of kindness as well as a small treat in the businesses around town.
