Kindness calendar

Earlham is a kindness school. As a Kindness School, we place kindness and empathy among students at the centre of our school. We believe a society in which its members show mutual respect and tolerance is one that grows ever stronger. We also believe that teaching values of kindness and empathy is a vital part of childhood education, especially at this very difficult time.

The Kindness School Foundation, of which we are a member, has developed a 'kindness calendar' with activities we can all do to help others as well as support our own wellbeing. Click the picture to see the full calendar
