Spread a Little Kindness
In line with Santa Maria’s Mental Health Strategy and the 2020 Mercy value of Compassion, we, the Year 10 leaders, are engaging in little acts of kindness. We started with the Sticky Note Project.
As we approach our first-ever exams, the leaders left notes of encouragement and support on the lockers of our peers last Friday, ending the week on a high note.
Corbett Leader, Mia Fogden said, “We find it especially important to spread compassion with our peers. The handwritten note from one of the leaders included something nice written on it and maybe even a personal warm fuzzy. We hope this will encourage our year group to put their best foot forward and try their hardest in the upcoming weeks.”
Kindness is especially important in the ever-changing world we find ourselves in. While the fluidity of life can be very stressful, we want to show our support for all our Homeroom members. We hope that our compassion for our fellow students will encourage them to perform little acts of kindness in turn. This will lead to a happier school community, boost peer morale, and the mental health of all students, starting with the Year 10s.
The student representatives ask you to pass on the kindness extended to you, whether it be through a compliment, an act of service, or even a smile. We wish you the best of luck heading into your exams and remind you to keep an eye out for our colourful messages of kindness!
