The Kindness Tree
Newman School is focused on the importance of being kind. At school we have a kindness tree where we write nice messages about people. The kindness tree is near the hall and on the way to the bottom corridor. To be kind you can help each other, share, look after people and solve propblems with others. The leaves are shaped like hands.
