Blessings Bench and Kindness Path initiated by St Hilda’s students

Three very special St Hilda’s School students tell us about their Blessings Bench and Kindness Path initiatives, inspiring others with their insights into the meaning of friendship and the importance of kindness: “Kindness is an important part of being a good friend and friends are such a big part of life and are always there for you. It is important to show kindness to everyone because we don’t know what people are going through. Even just a little act, like a smile, can make a difference and make people feel safe and welcome”
