On September 21st, Thursday, our PYP students came together to celebrate World Gratitude Day. They showcased their gratitude not just through words but also with heartfelt gestures and actions, creating a truly memorable experience. Each student from grades 3, 4 and 5 wrote a note expressing appreciation on a leaf and hung it on The Gaudium’s gratitude tree. Students of grades Nursery, PP1 and PP2 make their class gratitude jars while their friends in grades 1 and 2, wrote a thank you.
World Gratitude Day is a global celebration dedicated to acknowledging and expressing gratitude for the good things, people, and experiences in our lives. At The Gaudium School, we believe in nurturing not just academic excellence but also the values that shape compassionate and well-rounded individuals.
his event aimed to instill in our young learners the importance of gratitude. In a world filled with distractions, it’s essential to pause and reflect on the people who make our lives better. Through this activity, our students learned to appreciate and reciprocate kindness.
The biggest takeaway from this heartwarming celebration was the joy of giving and receiving gratitude. Our students showcased their appreciation for each other and teachers not only through notes but also through thoughtful actions and gestures. They realized how these gestures could create a more harmonious community.
At our school, we are committed to nurturing the holistic development of our students. This event aligns with our core philosophy of fostering empathy, kindness, and respect. By encouraging gratitude and showcasing it through actions, we are helping our students become not only academically successful but also socially and emotionally intelligent individuals who will make a positive difference in the world.
