Another day full of giggles with the girls at the Kensington Public School, with all this enthusiasm the program is off to a good start. Today we spoke about the strength of compassion. The girls read the book Chrysanthemum.
The book tackles many issues, one of the most important issue it focused on was bullying. Chrysanthemum a young girl is being made fun of due to the uniqueness of her name. This book helped the girls understand how compassion is essential in our daily lives and how without it people’s feelings could get hurt. The exercise that followed the book was to write their name and a positive adjective that describes them. This activity showed the girls how even though we need to show compassion to each other, but we also need to show compassion to ourselves.
