WORLD KINDNESS DAY WORKSHOP
Celebrate World Kindness Day by taking part in our biggest ever virtual Kindness Workshop! We usually run our workshops in person, but this World Kindness Day we wanted to reach as many children as possible, so we are hosting an online workshop (this will be held either via YouTube Live or as a Zoom webinar – we will confirm shortly) and inviting schools join us. Our workshops aim to spread kindness and empower children by helping them to realise that the little choices they make every day have the power to change people’s lives, while improving their own physical and mental health at the same time.
1. A fun presentation (25 minutes)
The workshop is led by our Director of Kindness, Greig Trout, and held via You Tube Live o Zoom Webinar (the exact format will be confirmed shortly). The children will be able to see Greig, but he can’t see or hear the children. During the presentation, Greig will interact with the children by asking questions, which can be answered by a teacher writing in the chat window (or the children, if they are on individuals computers). Or if you prefer, you can just sit back, listen and enjoy the workshop.
2. Taking action
Towards the end of the workshop, Greig will tell the children about a real child in need of kindness. The children will then be tasked with going away and doing something kind for that child (eg. writing a kind letter or drawing a picture). These can be emailed or posted to us, and we can pass them along to that child (please make sure they are no bigger than A4 size).
After we deliver the children’s letters and drawings to the child they helped, we will feed back to you so you can let the children know what difference they made. This often includes a photo or message from the child they helped. This helps the children to see the tangible difference their actions can make to someone’s life.
Age Group: Most suitable for ages 6-11
Time: 9.05-9.30am (BST) on Friday 13th November 2020. The children will also need to spend some time after the workshop to do the task they were set.
