Start a trend of doing random acts of kindness at your school.
Work as an inspirED team to plan and do random acts of kindness. Capture your acts on social media and share them with a hashtag, encouraging everyone to get involved.
Tips & Suggestions:
- Offer raffles or prizes for students who participate.
- Research shows that spreading kindness and helping others can improve your own happiness (Dunn, Aknin & Norton, 2008).
- Studies show that social media can be used to improve school community connectivity and even promote positive mental wellbeing (Allen et al., 2014; Davis, 2012; O’Reilly et al., 2018).
- In order to develop a sense of self-worth, students, and teachers, must feel respected by and connected to their community (Morrison, 2006).
