Acts of kindness by Moira Secondary School students

Students at Moira Secondary School are kind citizens. They demonstrated caring, cooperation and respect for others during 14th Annual Violence Awareness and Random Acts of Kindness Week, March 7 to 12, 2011.

They began the week with a full-school assembly where every student was given a Random Acts of Kindness card to give to someone who did something kind for them. The hope was that the kindness act would be passed on.

On Tuesday, five students took poster-sized cards, signed by hundreds of students, along with flowers to local emergency service partners, including police, fire and paramedic personnel, to thank them for all they do. A thank you email sent to principal Kim Sampson stated the following:

I just wanted to commend you and your students of Moira Secondary School for carrying out your “Random Acts of Kindness” campaign. Hastings-Quinte Emergency Medical Service was one of the fortunate recipients of your program today. Brennon MacKinnon, Brandan Kornblum, Austin Campbell and Jocelyn Bovay presented themselves in a very professional and friendly manner explaining the program and made it very clear they enjoyed what they were doing. What a great character building motivational project. Thanks for doing it!
