Random Acts of Kindness

Random Acts of Kindness!

This week, we are thinking about random acts of kindness in an attempt to inspire kindness in unforeseen times. We would love to find out about the ways in which our children are spreading kindness - we have also included a list from Mental Health Foundation to inspire you.
