What is World Kindness Day?

World Kindness Day was established by the World Kindness Movement in 1998, and is internationally recognised as a day to focus on the positive power and the common thread of kindness. In 2010, World Kindness Australia reported the very first schools celebration of World Kindness Day in Double Bay, NSW. In 2012, World Kindess Day was added to the Australian Federal School Calendar. Since then, many schools and students have participated in this annual celebration of kindness. World Kindness Day activities can be integrated into daily teaching or planned as a whole school event, such as an assembly.

When is World Kindness Day Observed?

World Kindness Day is observed globally on 13 November. In 2022, this date falls on a Sunday, so be sure to celebrate with your students either the week before or the week after!
