ALTHOUGH the spirit of giving can abound this time of year, the spirit of “me-ism” can quickly sneak in if we are not careful.
As much as we want our children at New Hanover Prep to get excited about all of the festivities of the holidays, we also want to teach them to focus their hearts and minds outward on others.

Recently, all the children from Grade RRR to Grade 7 presented carefully selected and decorated Christmas gifts to the delighted children at our neighbouring school. They also designed personalised cards to residents of surrounding care centres in the area thus sharing the joy of the festive season with others.

Christmas is a time for showing children how they can make a difference, even by the smallest act of kindness. It's also a time to help them develop empathy and understanding of those in need and it’s a time for action - for not just thinking about it, but for doing something meaningful that helps others.
