Kindness Rocks

Term: 2 Year: 2019

The ‘Kindness Rocks Project’ is a worldwide project founded by Megan Murphy, which aims to spread kindness by writing positive messages on rocks

Megan Murphy leaving messages and inspirational words on rocks and leaving them on the beaches of Cape Cod for people to find, hoping to make a difference in their life. The Kindness Rocks Project’s mission is “One message at just the right moment can change someone’s entire day, outlook, life.”

During the first couple of weeks of the school year, students at Lynbrook Primary School focussed on how we could spread kindness through words and messages. Students in Grades 1- 6 designed a rock, each with a unique message or quote on it. They painted their rocks and then used POSCA markers to draw their designs onto them.

Their messages were inspirational, and they hope to make someone feel happy. Although they may not know it, this simple and effortless gesture could possibly put a smile on someone’s face and brighten someone’s day after reading it. The rocks will be placed at the front of the school, so that students can go to the Kindness Rocks Garden when they are feeling frustrated or sad or simply just need to be reminded of just how wonderful they are.
