FEEL THE LOVE
“In 2016, we organised a Random Acts of Kindness Week for those in our Camberwell Girls Community. In the weeks leading up, we brainstormed a list of ideas of how we wanted to show kindness, and what Mustard wanted this kindness to reflect.
We decided that we wanted to focus on displaying God’s love for those in our school community, and encourage forgiveness among everyone. We made baskets filled with lollies and cards with bible verses written on it. The week went really well, with lots of emails and personal messages coming through from people expressing their gratitude.”

THE POWER OF THANK YOU
“Our lunchtime Group at Caulfield decided to honour our groundsman, Billy. Billy is a really sweet guy with a caring heart who does work that many would find tedious around the school. We lured him into the Yr 7 building, where we had the entire grade line up in two lines in a guard of honour. As soon as he stepped in, the entire roof exploded. The clapping and cheering was so much louder than we had anticipated! When Billy got to the front, we thanked him and gave him a signed card we’d prepared.
The underlying aim was really to bring light to all the people that we should be thanking, the people we may not see often but make our community work. I think that what we did had a definite effect on people, and to hear how loud the clapping was was simply testament to the appreciation that we hope to see in the future.”
