Reflection Time and Prayer of the Day

Good Morning Brown Clee!

I hope you all had a good weekend – despite the rather soggy, damp, windy weather!

We have been thinking about the word perseverance, and what it means – and how being able to persevere is such an important skill – whether it is with learning a new skill, over-coming a challenge or remembering to do the little things, like listen, follow instructions (the first time!) and be polite!

Our lives are so busy – in and out of school – we can often forget to take care of our interactions with other people.  I can see and hear it in school at times – a forgotten please or thank-you, or a careless word that causes unintentional hurt.

So today I want to focus on how important it is to remember to be kind to other people. By being kind, and saying nice things to each other, doing kind deeds for each other, we are showing respect – and we already know how important RESPECT is! I am a strong believer that kindness is contagious!  The more you show people kindness, they more they show it back!  Here is a short video which shows how acts of kindness can really make a huge difference to the world you live in!

“When we share acts of kindness, we colour our world!” – what do you think this might mean??   For me, it means that we can make our world a nicer place to live by being kind – that by being kind to people it makes people feel happier and it encourages more people to be kind.  Imagine if we could colour the whole world kind?

Today I am giving you a challenge!  See if you can add some colour as you go around school – give someone a smile, say something nice, hold a door open, say thank you – offer someone help!  See what happens afterwards!
