Chalk Love

Positive affirmation chalk graffiti all over the school grounds was the task for our class today.

I often hear quite negative attitudes from the kids about their school so we thought this would be a good challenge for the kids to think positive and do something nice for the other kids.

I thought it was going to be difficult to get the kids to stay positive but they proved me wrong.

It was the first time since I have worked with them that all kids were engaged with the activity and totally into it, including those naughty boys ;P

It was such an uplifting feeling to walk around the school at lunch time reading “Kippa-Ring Rocks” and “you are a star” and “believe in yourself”. It was a nice change from the usual tone and you could see that the kids loved doing it.
