I kind of decided many moons ago that creating responsible citizens was always going to be part of my educational ethos. I’m am/was an eco-warrior (until I realised how much paper I use) and have always been of the opinion that conservation and global citizenship is what will create a sustainable future. Therefore acts of kindness has always fitted in with my personal ethos.
To start this off in my school I carried out an acts of kindness bingo with my form group at the start of this year. It was greeted with an incredible response from them, the students came up with the acts of kindness and then started to put in place their suggestions in order to ‘sign off’ on the bingo sheet. Then they started just doing the acts willingly and never bothered to ‘sign off’. Now that’s the true ethos of game right?
So on the countdown to Christmas I’ve decided that this year instead of a chocolate advent calendar, this year I would share an acts of kindness countdown to Christmas with my form group.
I can’t wait to share it with my form group next week. I have treats, cards and other bits and bobs for them to use to give to others at the ready.
How will you share the seasonal spirit this year?

Here’s one take on the idea I shared
