We had a wonderful visit from Acicia Woodley the founder of the Friendship bench and Tiny Girl, Big Dream!!  Her message was one of including all and being a caring friend to those in need. A big message from a tiny girl :) . The students were engaged in activities that help them understand that they are not alone and the importance of reaching out to those around you that you see are in need and could use a friend. 


The Mission of Tiny Girl, Big Dream comes from the life of a tiny girl, a girl who was born of magic. A girl without complete arms who, despite her differences, or perhaps because of them, intuitively knows what it feels like to be left out, not to be part of the “normal” group. Every child, indeed, every person, understands that feeling, having felt it many, many times in their lives. But few have the big dream Acacia has.

One tiny girl has the courage of many and a big dream of making a difference for children by speaking out  and providing others with a means of expressing themselves without words- The Friendship Bench

Acacia’s dream is to place friendship kits into every school and spread friendship around the country and around the world. She believes that if we can begin to put the spotlight on all of the goodness, random acts of kindness, and yes, friendship, then we will begin to see a brighter more vibrant world. A world where kindness, compassion, and humanity are recognized, appreciated and rewarded. A world where acts of violence are replaced by acts of kindness.








Soon the bench will be moved outdoors to our newly developed green space so all can enjoy! 
Printed on the bench are words of encouragement and positive character traits such as; peace, belonging, celebrating,
respect and trust.  
With the bench comes an entire kit including a "friendship report" that can be used by teachers and students to report
acts of kindness and friendship, and some colourful wristbands stamped with the words "I am Amazing" - this will be a
critical piece in building our sense of community and understanding of the meaning behind the benches. 

We feel blessed to offer this to our students as a spot to build peace and peer relationships.
