KINDNESS AND COMPASSION

DURATION:  30 mins

OUTCOME:  Understand better what kindness and compassion is and how this impacts other people.

RATIONALE:  According to Aesop, “No act of kindness, however small, is ever wasted.”Kindness and Compassion go hand in hand and literally define a caring community. How we treat the sick, the infirm and those less fortunate than ourselves says everything about who we are as a group. How we treat each other is equally important, both collectively and individually.
One could question if kindness and compassion are innate within us or are they learned behaviours? The answer is it’s probably a bit of both.

KEY MESSAGES: 

• We can be kind in what we say and what we do.

• Being kind and compassionate makes us feel good inside too.

• You can be kind and compassionate to people and to animals too.

• Kindness and compassion spreads – If you are kind and compassionate to others, they will most likely be kind to you.

• Helping others is a kind and compassionate thing to do.
