Kindness Day and National Children’s Day – 12th May 2017
As part of our ongoing Safeguarding Development work and in conjunction with National Children’s Day, we at Canterbury Steiner School decided this year to raise awareness about Anti-Bullying and Online Safety through Kindness Day! Each Class was invited to engage with the question of how we relate to each other healthily in the world and online through a range of age appropriate discussions, games, information videos and creative activities. Both pupils and staff found the day fruitful and everybody felt they learned something new. While we believe that kindness sits at the heart of our curriculum and in the way we expect children to relate to each other, we feel that actively raising awareness about kindness enables children to identify bullying behaviour and helps them to feel more comfortable sharing their concerns with the adults around them. Kindness is never a wasted quality!

Here are some examples of the fantastic work from our classes;
