Say and Do Nice Things campaign re-launches for a fifth year

Say and Do Nice Things
The award-winning Say and Do Nice Things campaign launches in all schools during the week of November 19, 2018. It coincides with the provincial Bullying Awareness and Prevention Week, and lasts all year long.

November 12, 2018—The award-winning Say and Do Nice Things campaign is back starting November 19, 2018.

Say and Do Nice Things is a way for positive comments or stories to be shared at schools, the Education Centre and through families and communities. It’s a simple way to show kindness and care to others through welcoming behaviours, such as smiling, saying ‘hi’ or asking how things are going outside school/work.

The launch coincides with the provincial Bullying Awareness and Prevention Week which is November 19 – 23, 2018. It is a time for students, employees, parents/guardians and community to learn more about bullying and its effect on student achievement and well-being. Even so, Say and Do Nice Things goes beyond that week—it’s an approach that can happen all year long.

Schools are being provided with SDNT posters and post cards for awareness and action. See below for some of the ways schools and students have embraced SDNT over the past four years:
