NCCS Kindness Chapel with Lower School Counselor Carol Ribeiro.

Imagine children who cultivate kindness, encouraging each other to notice needs, forgive failings, and extend grace. Our students do a beautiful job practicing authentic kindness daily, and they recently got to celebrate it during the Great Kindness Challenge - a week focused on taking intentional kindness to the next level!

During a recent Lower School chapel, a panel of students led by LS Counselor Carol Ribeiro shared wisdom on how to walk out Christ-like kindness. Here’s some of their wisdom:

Noelle - Kindness means to forgive others even when they don’t see what they are doing wrong.

Sophia - Kindness makes me feel good because I am helping others and treating them how I would want to be treated. 

Abby - Kindness means doing something for someone else that I didn’t want to do and even doing it for someone who isn’t that close to you.

Logan - Kindness is helping others, even if you don’t want to — and doing something you may not want to do because it’s the right thing to do.

Welles - Kindness sometimes means coming up with a compromise. Instead of saying, “Why can’t we just play the game I want to play?”, you can suggest taking turns. You shouldn’t get your feelings hurt if you don’t always get your way.

Jonah - Kindness to me means being nice to everyone, even if they are mean to you because Jesus loved us first.

Amen, students! Keep shining bright with God’s loving kindness!
