Rite Journey - Acts of Kindness

Year 9 students have dedicated a wall in the Gadal building where they post random acts of kindness they have performed.

The theme for the Year 9 cohort in 2022 is It’s The Little Things That Are Important.

During Term 1, Rite Journey teachers and students have explored activities around random acts of kindness.

Research has shown that, “an act of kindness can boost feelings of confidence, being in control, happiness and optimism. This also encourages others to repeat the good deed, contributing to a more positive community”.

Some of the acts posted on the wall so far include giving a compliment, holding the door for a teacher, leaving an anonymous thank you note, calling a friend or family member you haven’t spoken to in a while and offering to cook dinner.

The Rite Journey teachers are proud of the work the students have performed and look forward to seeing more acts of kindness appear on the wall in Term 2.
