Fermoy Friendship week returns again for an action packed week from the 11th – 15th April. As in previous years the overall aim is to promote all things th
at encourage Friendship within the community.
|Members of the Fermoy Community Network launching Fermoy Friendship Week|
One of the central events for the past number of years has been the particip
ation of all Fermoy based schools in the ‘Random
Acts of Kindness Initiative’ - the thinking behind this initiative is that
everyone loves to read a positive message.
So over the course of Friendship Week we ask all the students, teachers
and staff to be more conscious about performing Random Act of Kindnesses. All kindness stories are written on post-it
notes provided and they are placed on the board for everyone to see as a
reminder of the positive effect that kindness has on people.
