Moorelands BLAST Show Caring for Valentine’s Day

This week BLAST Thorncliffe have been thinking about caring and how they can show they care -just in time for Valentine’s Day!

In an arts and crafts activity, BLAST kids were encouraged to make a card for someone they cared about – maybe a family member, friend or teacher – and think about why it’s important to show people that you care about them.

Caring is one of Moorelands character qualities that we help kids develop in our programs. Through activities and debriefs we help them explore why it’s important to be kind and compassionate; to express gratitude and forgive others; as well as to help those in need.

Helping out with the fun were some of our VITAL volunteers from our high school leadership program. They got a chance to lead some of the group activities, developing their communication and listening skills.

Check out the pictures of our kids having fun showing they care!

There are still some spaces in our BLAST programs which take place at Thorncliffe Park PS, Gateway PS and Grenoble PS. Click the button below to learn more and register.
