A few weeks ago I took a trip to Alt Primary School in Oldham to show the pupils that it’s COOL TO BE KIND.

Cool2BKind is Forever Manchester’s scheme which encourages Year 5 and 6 pupils to take part in acts of kindness and steer them in a positive direction for the benefit of their local neighbourhood. It’s exciting to be involved and to help inspire the pupils.

I told them about the kind things I do like giving out umbrellas in the rain and hugs to people on the street and they came up with their own great ideas for being nice to people in Alt too. One group decided to wash the teachers’ cars for free and another is going to teach street art to the younger kids in the neighbourhood. I’m looking forward to hearing how the kids’ projects go over in Alt.

What kind things could you do for people in your neighbourhood? It really is cool (and fun) to be kind!
