Students were learning about emotions and the importance of well-being in both their heart and mind. During free time, a student decided to make a heart for the “Kindness Jar” to make everyone feel good inside. She was very focused and chose not to participate in the other centres even when other students asked her to play. She was very proud of her work and she wanted to show everyone that she knew that hearts represented love.

When she was finished, she said, “Look! Take a picture of me!”
