Kindness Week at the OCSB

posted Mar 21, 2016, 10:56 AM by School Websites
The city-wide initiative known as "Kindness Week" celebrated its ninth anniversary this year. Schools within the Ottawa Catholic School Board have actively embraced the Kindness Week movement across the city by encouraging our community, staff and students to "choose to be kind."

The week was kicked off right here at Our Lady of Fatima School where resource teacher Deirde Quinn, French teacher Norma Khairallah, and office administrator Susan Conway were presented with Kindness awards from Rabbi Bulka, Chair and Founder of Kindness Week in Ottawa for their kind acts and absolute commitment to the school, staff and students.

At St. Peter High School, students performed a different act of kindness for each day of the week including things like posting a kind quote on social media, hugging a friend, writing a thank you note to a teacher who impacted their life, and putting away their phone to talk to their friends face to face.
