This year we are very excited to have signed up to 'The Positive Postbox' initiative. It is a means of empowering children by writing a letter or simply drawing a picture which will then be posted through the 'Positive Post Box' and sent to another child somewhere in the UK at a partner school. The children are being invited to send and receive their letters, teaching them it’s cool to be kind and promoting mutual respect and proactive kindness to others from a young age. Mutual respect is about caring for one another, treating others as equals to help us all thrive. In a recent Nationwide Building Society survey, it was found that 71% of the UK feel that levels of respect in society have declined in the last few years. This is what inspired Nationwide Building Society to work with other organisations committed to creating a more caring and mutually respectful society, in all walks of life. Every child at Roberts Primary School has now had the opportunity to write a letter and our wellbeing ambassadors were the last of the children to post theirs this week.
The letters have now been collected by the postman and all we have to do is wait to receive our letters from the school we have been partnered with!
We are all very excited.
It is cool to be kind and communicate!
