As part of our Amber Flag application, all pupils are completing our annual Advent of Kindness in Béibhinns honour. They are busy completing random acts of kindness each day. Then, they are drawing or writing about these acts of kindness into a blank calendar of their own.

The calendar pictured below is a list of suggested acts of kindness that the pupils are adopting.

Well done everyone!

Please feel free to share our calendar and keep on spreading the kindness 😊
