Do you know that there is a global day dedicated to nice words? Yes, exactly – today is Say Something Nice Day, a day when we share words of gratitude, support, kindness and humour. Today is a global day of positive vibrations which we send when we’re affectionate to others; when we make others laugh; when we use words to show love and warmth.
We love celebrating days like these at the International School. So, it’s our pleasure to share with you the kind words sent by our students.
What’s the origin of Say Something Nice Day?
Mayor Keith Summey of North Charleston, South Carolina, proclaimed 1 June as Say Something Nice Day in recognition of the communication efforts of Dr. Mitch Carnell, founder of the day. Carnell is also the author of Say Something Nice: Be a Lifter at Work, a book that sends the message that we should be optimists; people who inspire with their words and approach. This idea truly deserves a global day, and the International School supports initiatives that can make someone’s day better.
Let’s use the power of positive words
Say Something Nice Day is there to remind us how important it is to be affectionate, kind, warm, and full of positive energy. Words are a powerful means we can use to make the world a better place, provided we use them in the right way.

Lena S. This school is a very happy place because teachers are young and they are closer to our mindset.
Mia A. The school provides us with future opportunities, therefore this school is one of the best options, when considering which school you would like to enrol in.

Let’s make each other smile and let’s be kind to each other – on 1 June and any other day of the year!
