Be Kind Belize
The Be Kind Belize Humane Education programme has been specifically designed to meet the needs of the Belize National Curriculum at Standard 2, 3 & 4  and is aimed at children between the ages of 8-10 years old.  Lessons will complement and enhance studies in math, science, social studies, art and health.  Lesson plans can be adapted as needed to fit in with the principles of different schools and as all lessons are interactive, the children are more likely to learn effectively because they will be personally involved in the learning process.

Holy Cross classmates take helicopter ride

The the Be Kind Belize humane education programme had four kids chosen by their classmates as the kindest children in their class. Two children from Holy Cross - Ranesha Mendez and Omar Gonzalez and two from Island Academy - Kyla Couch and Dorian Sanchez won the top prize which was helicopter ride sponsored by the very wonderful Astrum Helicopters. The aim of the prize was to allow the children to observe how beautiful and precious the environment around Ambergris Caye is and to leave a life long impression on them as to how important it is to preserve this for the future.

Only two of the children, Ranesha and Kyla, were able to take the ride and they truly will never forget the experience during which we flew all the way to Rocky Point to see where the reef meets the caye. As we were flying over the reef, the amazing pilot, Mr. Gustavo Giron Sr., took us low and pointed out marine life that we could see from above such as Spotte Eagle Rays.

The community of San Pedro should be very proud of these children as they have set an excellent example as to why kindness and responsibility are so important. Many thanks to Astrum Helicopters for their very generous donation and unbelievable dedication to making sure that these children had this incredible opportunity.
