Gotherington Primary School – Kindness is a thing that Makes People Happy

Celebrating World Kindness Day, The Songwriting Charity is marking this global celebration of kindness with the official launch of the ‘Something Kind’ Primary School programme in Gloucestershire, in partnership with Gloucestershire Healthy Living and Learning, with generous support from the Summerfield Charitable Trust.

This autumn, to run alongside our hugely successful and impactive “Bully Beat” programme, we are launching the “Something Kind” programme.

Underpinned by a focus on emotional health & wellbeing, the programme seeks to raise confidence levels in those involved and engender strong relationships at secondary level whilst bolstering resilience through transition to secondary school for our primary school participants. We will be working with schools in the most rural communities in Glocuestershire with a range of disadvantage based on numbers of disabled, impoverished and geographically isolated children, ensuring those with least access to the arts are given new opportunities to participate.

We think of Something Kind as the flip side of our Bully Beat coin. Once awareness is established through school based bullying prevention work, it’s important to help children explore other creative measures to establish and maintain a happy and enriching learning environment. This Something Kind workshops will provide unique opportunities to experience and offer kindness through the magical means of songwriting and self-expression.As always, the Something Kind workshops will leave the wonderful legacy of an original song for the school and the lasting effect of children reaching out to each other to offer kindness.The programme is generously supported by The Summerfield Charitable trust and Gloucestershire Healthy Living & Learning.

Something Kind encourages acts of kindness through songwriting – giving “Kindness” the reputation it deserves.
