STUDENTS and staff at an all girls school in Truro made a visual statement this week as part of 'World Kindness Week'. 

More than 400 students and staff at Truro High School for Girls formed a giant heart on the school’s astroturf as part of their celebrations of World Kindness Week.

The visual statement was part of a week of Kindness-related activities at the school which will sees all pupils tasked with performing acts of kindness in their communities. The girls are also taking time to reflect and write about the importance of being kind with those thoughts turned into a heart-shaped installation as the week progresses.

Wellbeing is a key part of education at the school where the entire school day is constructed around the principles of PERMA – positive mental health.

Senior Deputy Head, Katie Hinks, said: “Of all of our school values, kindness comes first.  Above all things we must be kind.  In being kind we are all winners because not only does it feel great when someone is kind to you but you also feel wonderful when you do something kind for another person. 

"I am really excited to celebrate this special week in such a lovely way!"
