Bucket Filling Promotes Kindness and Character Development

29th Apr 2013

One of our aims at Wandsworth Prep School is to provide pupils with a nurturing, caring and warm learning environment where children develop a passion and love of learning. We are strong believers in the importance of building community and being a school family, and are excited to announce our new Summer initiative which will bring our school ethos and ambitious aims to light for pupils in a tangible way. Following on from our ‘How We Work’ focus in the Spring, this term we are introducing a new character development programme called Bucket Filling. Bucket filling is an easy-to-understand concept: Everyone carries an invisible bucket that holds our good thoughts and feelings. When our buckets are full, we feel happy and when our buckets are empty, we feel sad. Children quickly understand that they can fill buckets when they do and say things that are kind, considerate, caring, and respectful. They also learn that when they are mean, inconsiderate, uncaring, or disrespectful, they dip into buckets and remove those good feelings. Even the youngest child understands that actions and words can either fill a bucket or dip into it. During this term we are encouraging, reminding, and recognising everyone’s efforts to be bucket fillers at home, at school, and everywhere they go. We are excited about this programme and look forward to your support. If you would like to learn more about bucket filling, visit the Bucket Fillers website.
