Dentzler Elementary students go on NED Kindness Adventure
February 10, 2020
On January 21st, Dentzler’s students participated in a NED Kindness Adventure Assembly. NED stands for Never give up, Encourage others, & Do your best! One of NED’s world-class performers brought an unforgettable adventure to the school. Using storytelling, music, interactive videos, magical illusions and audience participation, Dentzler’s students went on a journey to Africa.
NED has partnered with Bidii Primary school in Nairobi, Kenya, who invited them, and their friend, NED, a lovable cartoon character, to visit their beautiful country. Although there was some fear and reluctance at first because of the differences, they quickly learned that they have something in common with the kids in Kenya that can break down barriers… a kind heart and a caring attitude.
NED’s Kindness Adventure assembly supports Dentzler’s initiatives for developing a positive and caring school climate. Its proactive approach aims to prevent many forms of mistreatment, including bullying, by showcasing the sense of satisfaction that takes place when a child chooses to show kindness, respect and acceptance. The free assembly was funded by their Pay-it-Forward program which includes a school sale of handmade jewelry from Africa to pay for the next school who gets to enjoy the Kindness Adventure!
