Keith St School pupils are a caring community and they have been performing acts of kindness all month.

Principal Linda Ireton said school participated in the Wattie's Cans for Good week from November 14 - 18 and donated all the cans they collected to the Salvation Army foodbank.

"At Keith Street School our values are Ākonga - be a learner, Manaakitanga - be respectful, Haumarutanga - be responsible, and Whakaora - be safe.

"We have been looking closely at an aspect of Manaakitanga - 'treat people right' through acts of kindness."


Children in year 2 and 3 in room 17 at Keith St wanted to do something for the people of Kaikoura so they designed and drew cards to send to children Kaikoura schools.

Mrs Ireton said the next Keith St kindness project involves making little gifts to put in Christmas boxes for donation to Whanganui families.

"We are so proud of our students and our community and their kindness towards others," she said.
