CHILDREN from Broughton-in-Furness CoE Primary School put smiles on traders's faces across the village.

Random Acts of Kindness by Class One saw young pupils from the school walk throughout Broughton to hand people potted flowers.

Recipients included the newsagents, the local butchers, and Broughton Information Centre.

The gifts were also handed to random people in the street.

The children spent last week potting a flower each after learning and discussing about kindness through reading books.

A unanimous favourite with the children was The Three Billy Goats Gruff when the mother goat knitted some gifts for the troll.

The children also prepared for the kindness project on Friday by writing small labels for the plants, which also had quotes on about flowers.

The school is located on Kepplewray and provides regular features for the children, including “Praise of the Week, where the children are rewarded for going above and beyond.

The school provides Christian ethos ensures that the education centre is a wonderful caring, inclusive environment for all children.

A school spokesman said: “We’re enormously proud of our community; we have wonderful links with all our families who support our vision to create happy, resilient members of our future communities.”
