Reflection questions and activities for ‘90 deeds for 90 years’

Clare Deignan |  31 October 2016

Read the article ‘90 deeds for 90 years’ and answer the following questions. Then share your answers in pairs, small groups or in a classroom discussion.

1. The students a St Rita’s in Clayfield, Queensland are completing 90 deeds for their school’s 90th anniversary. Has your school or church celebrated its anniversary? Or has someone in your family celebrated an anniversary or birthday? (A birthday is an anniversary - believe it or not!) How does your community or family celebrate anniversaries?

2. Why do you think the 90 deeds for 90 years campaign is a different way to celebrate an anniversary? How is it different?

3. Have you volunteered or raised money for a charity in the past? What did you learn from your experience? 

4. If you had to pick an organization to volunteer for, what organization would you pick? Research online which charity you’d like to volunteer with. How would you like to help?

Activities

1. Find 90 charities: Get into pairs or groups of threes. Research online the charities in your area. Write them down as you go. How many did you find? Compare answer to others groups in your class. 

Create a poster encouraging students to volunteer for one of these charities and help others in your community! 

2. How old is your school turning? Why not help your teachers and student leaders plan a Deeds for Years campaign like St Rita’s did for their school’s 90th birthday?! This is a great way to celebrate your school’s anniversary and help your community!

For younger students

90 deeds: Although you might not be able to volunteer for a charity, how many good deeds can you do this year, this month or before the end of the school year? They can be small good deeds, like sharing your lunch with a friend who forgot their lunch or you could clean your room without your parents asking.

Teachers can create a chart to keep track of students progress!
