Compassion Counts

Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them humanity cannot survive. ~ Dalai Lama

This month’s character trait of compassion really seemed to resonate with the children.
As a community, we had two opportunities in December to express our compassion for others – our St Ann Food Drive and our warm clothing collection for The Native Women’s Resource Centre. To see the children participate in these initiatives with such understanding and enthusiasm was wonderful. Thank you for supporting our efforts to help teach the children to reach out when they see someone in need. It is something we hope they take away from their time at CGS. The children also practise compassion every day here at school with their friends. We see heartfelt displays of compassion all the time. Congratulations to the compassionate souls recognized this morning at the Character Education Assembly.
