Electric Ireland’s Powering Kindness is a special initiative that encourages people to be kind to one another, while raising much-needed funds for three chosen charities.
Piercestown N.S. have decided to join in this wonderful initiative and see how much kindness can be powered both in school and at home! A Powering Kindness noticeboard has been set up with a positive thought for each day. Tuesday’s thought read :
‘Kind words can be short and easy to speak but their echos can be truly endless!’
Keep an eye on the blog each day for more positive thoughts. The Powering Kindness board also contains lots of post its. This affords the children the opportunity to carry out a random act of kindness or a child who is in receipt of a random act of kindness to record this for the school to see. Everyone in Piercestown NS is invited to take part in this initiative from junior infants to 6th class, teaching staff and non teaching staff, parents and members of our community.
Take inspiration from some quotes by famous people:
No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted. Aesop
There is no need for temples, no need for complicated philosophies. My brain and my heart are my temples; my philosophy is kindness. Dalai Lama
Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see. Mark Twain
Carry out a random act of kindness, with no expectation of reward, safe in the knowledge that one day someone might do the same for you. Princess Diana
Remember it costs nothing but it might make someones day! What will your random act of kindness be?!
