LRSD Project Generosity Featured on CTV News

May 1, 2018

A classroom in LRSD is sparking a movement and changing worlds in our local and global communities!

Students in Room 23 at General Vanier School have been performing acts of kindness and generosity since September 2017. Whether it was writing positive letters, participating in community clean-ups, volunteering for jobs or helping out around the house, every act was done to spread kindness with family, friends and the Vanier community. Thaddeus Bourassa, Room 23's teacher, took to Twitter to share what the class was doing while using the opportunity to connect and collaborate with other educators in LRSD. Mr. Bourassa began using the hashtag #LRSDprojectgenerosity and a movement was born!

Room 23 began brainstorming ideas to create a domino effect of kindness in March. The #LRSDprojectgenerosity Kindness Calendar was created, featuring a kindness challenge for each day of the month. Challenges included helping prepare a meal at home, completing outdoor chores and writing letters to someone you appreciate, among many others. Soon after being posted online the Kindness Calendar went viral, with teachers from LRSD to teachers in Australia and New York participating in their own kindness challenges!

The calendar has been shared with close to 30 educators with the same vision as Room 23. Mr. Bourassa estimates close to 2,000 acts of kindness have been performed since #LRSDprojectgenerosity began. 

On Friday, April 6, 2018, Nicole Dubé from CTV Winnipeg visited General Vanier School to cover #LRSDprojectgenerosity for the morning Community Connection. Nicole arrived just in time to capture Room 23's kindness board get filled with an amazing 646 acts of kindness and generosity. To learn more, view CTV's feature above, or click here

Congratulations to Mr. Bourassa and all of the kids in Room 23 at General Vanier School for this powerful accomplishment. You are changing worlds and spreading kindness in LRSD, Canada and across the globe!
