“The activities and presentation are great! I loved that you start with why. It was awesome. Thank you! We forget, sometimes, the simplicity and power of being kind.Educator
“We had the pleasure of having the 21 day kindness challenge kick off assembly, last year in February, at our school. The kick off assembly was an amazing event held to highlight kindness and acts that promote being kind. Children were engaged and it kick started 21 days of connection friendship and respect for others in our building.
“I want to take a moment to thank you and commend you for your trauma / kindness work. As well, thank you for making the time to present to our staff at our recent Professional day – it was a pleasure to witness your preparation, thoughtful planning, and passion for this work. Your presentation was engaging, enlightening and well crafted. It was clear you have a real desire for sharing this work; the workshop did a fabulous job connecting the importance of understanding the trauma in the everyday lives of many of our students and how trauma impacts them in multiple ways. As well, you did a masterful job building understanding around what we can do in our work to help students who are experiencing trauma. As well, you highlighted the idea that trauma is not simply the ‘big T’ cases we are typically aware of, but is often experienced by children both at school or at home on a much more regular basis. I particularly appreciated your understanding of the importance of ‘beginning with why’ before rushing to ideas and solutions – this is important in everything we do and can be a pitfall in education. I believe our staff will benefit a great deal both from the ‘science of trauma’ information and the case you made for how necessary it is that we acknowledge its importance. Last, while there are many things we cannot control as educators, we do have control of many things. How we choose to plan, act and react are all within our control, can be improved from day to day, and come at no financial cost.”Doug Smith, Principal, Greater Victoria School District (Educator In-Service)
Morgane presents in an engaging way that allows children to be active participants. Feedback from parents, teachers and students was always positive and we have continued to this day to reflect on what we have learned about kindness, how it makes us feel, help makes others feel, and how we can always strive to be kinder.”Joanna Snow, Principal, McKenzie Elementary School
“I appreciated the use of videos to highlight kindness. Very practical! Many options to actually get started in our school. We work in a challenging school with a lot of trauma. I appreciated the link you made between kindness and it’s impact on trauma. Thank you. This session surpassed my expectations.”Educator
“Practical and helps shift our focus to reach the whole child and to create more successful connections within our classes.”Educator
“Loved the personal touches- the rocks and notes, too! Loved and appreciated that it all moved along at a nice pace. So many great ideas! Inspiring! Thank you!”Administrator
“Thanks again for coming to do your 21 Days of Kindness Challenge at Wishart! It was something that fit well with our focus on being kind, accepting and grateful that we as a school have tried to focus on.Teacher
I know that your class presentations were very well received, and the whole school assembly was fantastic! The students were engaged and participating with your presentation. A testament to your presentation was that students were focused during that time. I think hearing the stories brought your message of the kindness challenge to the attention of our school students. Your suggestions of kind acts for the 21 days gives us a focus everyday which has been great, and seeing many students involved and doing that, and we have asked parents to do the same at home.”Garry Manhas, Principal, Sooke District
“It was great to explore the resources in the workshop and the online website and links. There were terrific suggestions throughout. I’ve already shared the website with the staff at my school!”Administrator
