Acts of Kindness

Horsham West Primary School has adopted the Act Of Kindness program to recognise kind gestures and generous behaviour at the school. Students Eden Hahne-Hawker, grade four, and Jemma Brown, grade two, were the first to be recognised for acts of kindness, which can be nominated by students and teachers. The pair now have their deeds recorded in an Acts Of Kindness register being compiled at the school. Assistant principal Dino McMillan shows Eden and Jemma their entries in the book. Mrs McMillan said the move to a focus on postive behaviour had already had an amazing impact at the school. “It’s incredible how looking for kind gestures, now matter how small, can impact on attitude and behaviour in such a wonderful way,” she said. Act Of Kindness was founded by Ballarat’s Marion Parsonage in 2005 with the creed: “Like a pebble in a pond, an act of kndness ripples outward through the world influencing lives in ways we could never imagine”. Mrs McMillan said the program wouldn’t be possible without the support of ‘kind’ sponsor Horsham Veterinary Clinic.
