When we were looking at how we could celebrate the festivities this year, we asked our pupils, what is it that they wanted to do? We had lot of suggestions from Christmas assemblies to form group parties, non-uniform days to Christmas jumper day. Whilst we have been able to make some of these ideas happen, one idea which really stood out was from a pupil in 7EX1, Grace had the lovely idea of creating an advent calendar of kindness, with a thoughtful act to be completed each day. We were really pleased to be able to bring this suggestion to life and our advent calendar of kindness has not only been shared with the whole school, but across the Matrix Academy Trust too! This means that all our schools in Walsall, Birmingham and Nuneaton can show their kindness to each other throughout December!
Pupils are invited to pass compliments to one another, hold the door open for each other, make a drink from somebody at home and donate to a local food bank throughout the month. There are also activities to complete on the days when school has finished, so it does not stop on 16th December!
Well done Grace for such a kind and thoughtful idea, and well done to all our pupils for taking part on this wonderful gesture.
