Allenstown State School students pay kindness forward

STUDENTS at Allenstown State School will be paying forward kindness with a new initiative launched yesterday.

The school has created a paper tree, where students will pin "leaves" with random acts of kindness they've witnessed written on them.

School chaplain Samantha Whittington and teacher Amber Shackleton are hoping it will teach the students the value of a kind act and show generosity breeds more kindness.
