This fall Bay Farm’s student council created and filmed a kindness boomerang. They were inspired to do so after watching the original kindness boomerang, created by LifeVest, a nonprofit organization devoted to empowering and uniting the world with kindness. A kindness boomerang tracks acts of kindness as they are passed from one person to the next. It also shows that kindness is like a boomerang, it always returns.
Dramatic activity is already a natural part of most children’s lives. At Bay Farm, we believe in nurturing this creativity. We help our students develop their unique voices by exploring meaningful, fictional situations with parallels to the real world. Through our wonderful theater program, children are encouraged to take on responsible roles and make choices -- to participate in and to guide their own learning.
