Social Justice Activities for GVS – February:

The students involved in Social Justice have a special theme for February; R.A.O.K. – Random Acts of Kindness.

  • Pay it Forward – To encourage students to do something kind for each other, laminated “Pay it Forward” cards will be distributed throughout the school. The idea is that someone will start by doing something kind or encouraging to someone else along with giving them the card(secretly or not secretly), which encourages them to spread the kindness to someone else along with the card, and so on, and so on… Hopefully, it will grow on its own without the card even being needed.
