(Savannah schools) St. Andrew’s School Kindness Project

Monday, November 11th, 2019

St. Andrew's School Savannah kindness project

St. Andrew’s School on Wilmington Is. in Savannah invites the public to view and participate in a kindness project that is currently on display at the Islands Library, 50 Johnny Mercer Blvd, Savannah.

The collaborative project encourages individuals to pick a “kindness flower” and act on the words written on the leaf. The kindness project began as part of a summer camp at St. Andrew’s taught by parent Lea Lynch and artist Tiffany O’Brien.

“Tiffany created a beautiful display to serve as the backdrop for the project and students created tissue paper flowers with specific acts of kindness written on each stem,” said Lea Lynch. “The project really took off and the St. Andrew’s Lower School wanted to keep the kindness flowers blooming year-round.”

The school’s youngest students create the flowers from colorful tissue paper and the acts of kindness are the last component added before the flowers goes on the display board. Kindness acts range from sharing a smile with someone to taking the time to write and send a thank you note.

“Our students are busy making more flowers to keep up with the demand of people picking the flowers,” said Anne Weisel, Head of the Lower School.

The kindness project board will be at the Islands Library through the month of November. The exhibit travels to the Frank G. Murray Community Center for the month of January.

St. Andrew’s is an independent, International Baccalaureate World School offering the Diploma Program. The school inspires students age three through grade 12.
