Positive Education in Grade 1

Character Strength: Kindness

This week the Grade 1 students made buckets and learnt how to be a Bucket Filler… 


What is bucket-filling?

A bucket-filler is a small note or complement given to someone who practices kindness and good behaviour.  Students take the time to notice the behaviours and send a note to them.  When the bucket is full, this represents feeling happy and contented with life. 


The analogy comes from the book How Full Is Your Bucket? by Tom Rath and Donald O. Clifton.


Have you filled someone’s bucket today?
