Choose Kindness Day tomorrow is a chance for all to take that extra time to reach out and share some kindness in the community.

The Year 4 students at Bunbury Primary School were using their craft skills to create “pockets of kindness” to share the message.

The students wrote a kind message in the supplied cards that Choose Respect Bunbury coordinator Leanne Maher gave to Wattle Hill residents.

It’s an inter-generational exchange of kindness and all involved benefit from having some kind words,

Ms Maher said.

Teacher Claire Tennet-Brown said the students loved the opportunity to show kindness and appreciation to the older generation of Bunbury.

Ms Maher said tomorrow was about doing something above and beyond to share some kindness.

“Choose Kindness Day is about encouraging everyone to think about their thoughts, words and actions and how they impact people,” she said.

Bunbury City Council will be lighting the Koombana Footbridge blue and yellow tomorrow night to commemorate the day, while Rotary Club of Bunbury Leschenault will be holding a Kindness drive-through for “Give a Damn Give a Can” at Bunbury Regional Entertainment Centre.

The 2nd Bunbury Sea Scouts will host a community afternoon tea at the Graham Bricknell Memorial Music Shell.
