Here in Saint Gabriel’s, we like to start each new school year off on the right foot. We always focus on how we can be good friend’s to one another during the first week of school. And we’ve gotten really great at that over the last few years.
So this year, our focus is on kindness. We are working hard to be kind to our friends and classmates, by doing things like sharing, welcoming our new classmates, helping each other out, and including everyone in our play.
We are also doing activities in our classes to practise new ways of being kind. It feels good to be kind to others and it’s a super way to start the new school year.
