Do an act of kindness. Help one person SMILE!

World Smile Day 2022

If our children learn early the power of a smile and a kind act the whole world will be a better place. It doesn't have to cost anything to celebrate World Smile Day®. The act of kindness is the celebration.

World Smile Day 2021

On Friday 1st October, 2021 our School staff and pupils again be celebrated World Smile Day® 

There were lots of art activities throughout the school, including making Smile Day bunting, banners and posters, which we used to brighten up our school entrance areas and show how important kindness is to us all at Longroyde.

In Key Stage 1 and 2, children received “lucky dip” Smiley postcards with a positive message from one of their classmates to help each child to smile in school.

We encouraged year groups to carry out planned acts of kindness, for example, Year 4 are going to arrange a “Smiley” socially-distanced visit to the local care home. Each class  decided on a “Make someone smile” kindness pledge and will work on this throughout the school year. We went outside and took part in a mass “Pass the Smile” event in our different key stages. Children decided in class who their “Smashing Smiler” certificate recipients are. Adults will choose the members of their class who make most people smile and they will be rewarded with a little smiley something.

We invited pupils to wear something yellow with their school uniform on Smile Day, however, this was not compulsory. For example, a yellow T-shirt with school trousers, yellow shoes with uniform, or something small like yellow ribbons in hair. It was not a non-uniform day, children were expected to arrive in correct uniform if they had nothing yellow to wear. Nothing special has to be bought for the day.

We asked for a voluntary £1 donation this year, we will donate monies raised to a worthwhile charity.

We invited parents and carers to post Smiley messages on our website blog to record what it is about your child that makes you smile - see below.

We wish everyone in our school community a Happy Smile Day!
