■ Bayn­ton West Pri­mary School pre-pri­mary stu­dents are making it their Christ­mas mis­sion to show that a lit­tle kind­ness goes a long way.

Last Thurs­day morn­ing the chil­dren held an “acts of kind­ness” day and hosted lo­cal se­niors for morn­ing tea at the school.

They gave hand­made Christ­mas place­mats as gifts and pre­sented plenty of live en­ter­tain­ment for their amuse­ment.

Pre-pri­mary teacher Jes­sica Stevens said it was the lat­est in a se­ries of ac­tiv­i­ties her stu­dents had done as part of the class’ “kind­ness club” which started this year.

“I’m try­ing to teach them Christ­mas is about more than just re­ceiv­ing, it’s about giv­ing as well,” she said.

The club in­cludes tak­ing a daily kind­ness pledge and write pos­i­tive mes­sages on school foot­paths.

Ms Stevens said the chil­dren really en­joyed their acts of kind­ness be­cause they could see the good they were do­ing.

“We’ve talked about how kind­ness spreads, how one act of kind­ness makes more,” she said.

“If you make some­one’s day, then it spreads and they’ll make some­one else’s day.”
