This amazing six year old is the winner of the Random Acts of Kindness Week Challenge.

She has won prizes for herself plus this Buddy Bench for her school, donated by @NBBRecycledFurn.

After completing her challenges, Maya said she “felt ‘joy in her heart”. ❤️

The amazing School of Kindness is run by the charity @52lives.

It’s aim is to inspire kindness in classrooms across the UK to improve children’s mental and physical health.

It also wants to create a kinder world.

Researchers have found that people who do acts of kindness constantly are happier and generally live longer.

Schools across the UK are seeing amazing acts of kindness going on among thousands of children.

For example, In Weston-super-Mare, Somerset the students at Priory Community School Academy (PCSA) in Weston-super-Mare, Somerset, are constantly awarded for their incredible character, actions and hard work.

The academy believes in constantly looking for ways to praise and congratulate their students with a range of celebrations and awards throughout the year.

Principal Angelos Markoutsas said: “We praise students regularly and look for those who are showing outstanding character and hard work. Kindness, compassion and attitude is what we celebrate regularly.”

PCSA is part of The Priory Learning Trust.

World Kindness Day was first launched in 1998 by The World Kindness Movement, an organisation formed at a 1997 Tokyo conference of kindness organisations around the world.

There are currently more than 28 nations involved in The World Kindness Movement. The mission of the World Kindness Movement and World Kindness Day is to create a kinder world by inspiring individuals and nations towards greater kindness.
