Random Acts of Kindness
In the spirit of our motto Non Sibi, Wyndcroft celebrates those little acts of kindness that make our community such a special place.
Non Sibi, from Latin, loosely translates to "not for one self." The Wyndcroft community puts this motto into practice through community service projects which help many people throughout our region. We also put Non Sibi into action through random acts of kindness that may only make a difference to one or two people at a time.
During our weekly school gatherings, the names and good deeds of our community members are read. Each act of kindness, no matter how small, is special. We are proud of our kind and caring community.
