SKEENA MIDDLE School students are doing random acts of kindness to help their part of the community.
In about mid-October, shop teacher Matt Sydor introduced the project to his advisory class, which is like homeroom and meets once a day, and came up with the idea for the Grade 9s to take a leadership role to emphasize the success and positivity at the school that often isn’t seen or heard about outside school.
Students are asked to do the random acts as they arise or scheduled ones at school and outside school and share what they did, said Sydor.
They get a piece of paper to write down their random act and their name or initials, which is then posted on a display at the front of the school.
Examples of their random acts include tidying classrooms, being an audience for an activity or other ideas that they can do at school during their advisory time.
Outside of school those acts could be holding the door for people, buying someone’s coffee or treat at a store.
Random Acts of Kindness will continue throughout November.
