Singapore Kindness Day has now been extended to 564 kindergartens and other pre-schools across the island – which means that more than 80,000 pre-schoolers are now a part of this celebration.
Theme is ‘A Nation Of Kindness Starts With One’
Using the theme of “A Nation of Kindness Starts with One” – advocating the power of the individual to make a difference, pre-schools were given a Kindness Day SG Resource Package to help teachers create simple, but meaningful, activities for the kids.
Pre-schools include Carpe Diem, Cherie Hearts, Just Kids, Little Skool-House International, My First Skool, MY World, Nurture Education Group and PAP Community Foundation. They all got their packages earlier this month, and have been staging their own kindness celebrations in classrooms.
Handing out certificates of participation to pre-schools
To recognise the pre-schools who have committed to partnering SKM in implementing the activities within their schools, SKM also handed out a certificate of participation to them, marking their commitment to nurturing pro-social values in children. This will help create a kinder and more gracious Singapore.
Kindness has no minimum requirements
Said Dr William Wan, general secretary of Singapore Kindness Movement, “Kindness doesn’t discriminate according to age. It has no minimum height restrictions. Kindness only has a minimum heart requirement, and our young people have plenty of heart.”
He continued, “This is why I believe that it is vitally important to encourage values like kindness, graciousness, empathy and consideration from a very young age. We are thus ecstatic at the overwhelming support we have received from pre-schools for Kindness Day SG.”
Members of the public can also make Singapore Kindness Day
Members of the public can also mark Kindness Day SG with their families and communities – at ImagiNation at *SCAPE Playspace on 30th and 31st May.
