13. World Kindness Day

Today is World Kindness Day. I challenged my Form to carry out random acts of kindness; smiling, offering help, offering seats on the bus, etc. They are kind generally, but today especially. We have done away with a long list of school rules, and instead have decided upon Five Simple Ways of behaving. The second is "Be kind and respectful to everyone in School". There is a poster to remind them in every classroom, so we should have a whole school of considerate, respectful girls!

My all-time favourite kind person is Pollyanna. As luck would have it, today of all days, I came across a copy in the bookshop I pop into on my way to Waterloo, so I bought it for my cousin Isabel, (age 9) for Christmas.

The world should have more Pollyannas for it to be a better place!


  1. I've never read Pollyanna but maybe I should? I always liked Katy from What Katy Did & Anne of Green Gables. Not quite such good people but still pretty good.

  2. I've never read the book but i have seen the movie version of it with Haley Mills and liked it a lot.

  3. this is interesting, I didn't know about this. Funnily enough today is the day i will be writing our 'family' rules on a chalk board, and there are five of them and the first on is be kind! I have been doing a teen parenting course! nice to meet you, Heather x
