Recently, as mentioned, we experienced technical issues and although some of the news you are now reading on Sue’s News is a little old, it is still of great importance…
Kindness Week (12-16 November)
‘Alone we can do so little. Together we can do so much’
A Year 4 initiative to spread a culture of kindness across St Kilda Primary School.
In the words of Bec and Millie (4G):
Throughout the year we have had a focus on how we interact and care for others and ourselves. We have been working on developing a deeper understanding of the power we have to impact others positively through our actions and words.
We have been involved in a range of activities, like; writing biographies on people who have faced adversity in their lives (and how they dealt with the adversity), collected data across the school about issues people are having in the playground and strategies they have to deal with them, planned and ran ‘RUOK? Day’ at SKPS and much, much more!!! (Just ask any Grade 4 and they can tell you all about it!).
We have been working hard all term on our Kindness Week Project. We drafted, revised, edited and eventually published a Kindness Recipe book! It was so cool. We thought “what better to go with a recipe book, than a …. Cupcake Stall!!!
So…. on the 14th of October we (Millie and Rebecca from 4G) set up a cupcake stall on the canteen steps. We made a target, hoping to raise $300 to donate to the Make a Wish Foundation. With the help of our friend Ivy and teacher Miss Gannon, we baked over 150 cupcakes! On the day we sold out. When we counted the money, we were so amazed that we raised $317!!! We were sooo happy! We hope to do this again so we can help Make a Wish or other charities. We will always be happy to help the less fortunate and we hope everyone else does too.
Thank you to everyone for supporting us and buying a cupcake!
