Teaching the world the power of kindness

When actively explored in schools, kindness is a powerful tool for nurturing the well-being of everyone! Scientific studies have shown that kindness has a great number of physical and emotional benefits which support people to be happy, confident, well-rounded individuals. See all the benefits in our poster downloadable here.

The activities in the Kindness Curriculum are intended to provide stimuli for classroom discussions and actions. Learning experiences have been designed to complement specific national curriculums (e.g. Australian National curriculum) and The Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL) competencies. The Kindness Curriculum also responds to the OECD’s Learning Compass 2030 evolving learning framework that sets out an aspirational vision for the future of education and contributes to the well-being of communities and the planet.

Once kindness is felt, its power is understood, and it is more likely to be reproduced. The Kindness Curriculum presents activities designed to build 12 attributes associated with kindness.

Why now?

Approximately ONE in FOUR Year 4 to Year 9 Australian students

(27%) reported being bullied every few weeks or

more often. (Bullying No Way)


ONE in SEVEN young people aged 4 to 17 years experience

a mental health condition in any given year.

(Beyond Blue)

Why this?

Scientific studies have shown that kindness has physical and emotional benefits, encouraging well-rounded individuals who can flourish cognitively, emotionally and socially.

Notes to Schools and Teachers

The aim of the Kindness Curriculum is to provide activities that teachers can utilise in classrooms to address and explore social emotional learning and pro-social skills and traits that support wellbeing.

Additional Resources

We aim to continue to provide updates that may interest teachers who want to embed Kindness Curriculum attributes in their schools and classrooms. Parents may also find many of these activities suitable for use in their home.
