Library Kindness Winners

Tor Bridge High School decided to use ‘kindness’ as its theme for its Book Week celebrations and activities for 2021.


The kindness initiative took many forms across the school and across all year groups. Whilst it was launched as an initiative to link with Book Week, we plan to ensure the theme continues throughout the year.


During our Book Week celebrations the school set five challenges for the students to undertake at home during the latest lockdown period as well as being an integral part of both Art and English lessons that week.


The Art department delivered kindness art lessons all week whereby students across the year groups were invited to consider kindness graffiti (inspired by the Kindness UK resource pack for secondary schools). They were then asked to create their own art work. Students were also invited to create a kindness poster for their windows at home, thanking whoever they wanted. Some of the posters are now displayed around the school to spread the message to all our students. 


During their art lessons, students were also asked to create a kindness note template. These templates will be used throughout the academic year to be left in random school library books as well as other locations around the school. The notes will include both the student artwork and a positive/kind message to the finder.


Artwork from twenty of our students have been made into kindness cards, as seen below.


The overall winner for the art competition was Phineas in Year 8. His Be Kind image can be seen here with his prize – a copy of the wonderful book ‘The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse’, by Charlie Mackesy.
