Finding Kind

19 Nov

Tomorrow afternoon, our grade 6-8 girls will be viewing a documentary about girl-against-girl. Please read the brief synopsis below on how the Finding Kind initiative evolved.
The idea began with Lauren Paul and Molly Thompson joining forces in 2009. The pair had an idea for a documentary about girl-against-girl bullying, which ultimately became Kind Campaign, an internationally recognized movement, documentary, and school assembly program based on the powerful belief in KINDness that brings awareness and healing to the negative and lasting effects of girl-against-girl “crime.” Niki Ghazi and Danielle Anastasio, two Ontario certified teachers volunteering within the Brownridge community, have won our school a screening of the documentary and hope to create change by giving females a platform to speak out about this universal experience. Following the screening of the documentary, Danielle and Niki hope to open up a conversation with the intermediate girls about how we can create a kinder Brownridge community.
