b kinder school – inspired by kindness, empowered by students.
A b kinder school is an annual initiative that is led by your student leadership team. Whilst the b kinder school initiative has been designed for student leaders, we also understand that depending on the age of your students, the amount of teacher support may vary. b kinder schools can be tailored to suit pre-schools all the way through to high schools.
Becoming a b kinder school will identify your school as demonstrating pro-active student leadership. b kinder schools encourage the student leaders to actively role model and create a culture of kindness, empathy and compassion throughout your whole school.
These leadership roles empower students to become kind, resilient and confident children, creating a kinder generation. Our initiative helps student leaders to develop positive relationship skills whilst connecting and collaborating with their teachers and peers. This initiative will help teach and model leadership skills such as empathetic listening, problem solving, working as a team, and appreciating student’s differences. This initiative will also impact student leaders to take ownership for their behaviour choices and allow them to mentor other students. This initiative gives the student leaders specific responsibilities and empowers them to use their own voices and take action to make a difference in their school.
There are 5 kindness initiatives that form the application criteria that students will be required to commit to:
- Lead b kinder day in your school
- Establish a “kindness space” within your school
- Demonstrate commitment to community service
- Create recognition of kindness for other students
- Connect and introduce a new school to b kinder day
