At the beginning of December 2017, learners took part in a Challenge with Gwylan Well-being matters programme, to prepare, paint and then write inspirational quotes on rocks.

What is The Kindness Rocks Project…?

Goal #1: Inspire others through randomly placed rocks along the way…

Goal #2: Recruit every person who stumbles upon it to join in the pursuit of inspiring others through random acts of kindness

Learners were encouraged to write what they felt and thought on the stones….

Ceredigion learners were totally immersed in the “Kindness Rocks Project”

Quotes from our 16-19 year old learners included:-

“You are not Alone”, “Live Life to The Fullest”, “ Stop being afraid of what could go wrong, and think of what can go right”, and “Every moment is as unique as the last”.

As a group Cardigan students felt it would be nice to place the rocks in Cardigan Castle grounds, however, on placing the rocks on view to the public at the office in St Mary’s Street, they were overwhelmed by the reaction of the general public, who stopped and discussed the “Inspirational quotes”. The kindness rocks have been placed in Future works office window for general public to see as they pass.

One learner stated on completion of the Kindness Rocks challenge:

“Everything you do and say has a positive or negative effect, my aim is to try and say and do positive things, and so create positive reactions!”
