If you managed to keep up with all of our school Facebook posts last week, you would have seen all of the great work being completed by students of all ages as NAISAK recognised Anti-Bullying Week. Throughout the Primary and Secondary School, students took part in a variety of different activities relating to Anti-Bullying. They explored what bullying means, acted out scenarios, learned a no- bullying rap and much more.
This year’s theme was ‘All Different, All Equal’ and had the following aims:
- To empower children and young people to celebrate what makes them and others unique.
- To help children and young people understand how important it is that every child feels valued and included in school and able to be themselves, without fear of bullying.
- To enable teachers and all professionals to celebrate what makes us ‘all different, all equal’ and celebrate difference and equality.
- To encourage teachers to take individual and collective action to prevent bullying, creating safe environments where children can be themselves.
As a school, we recognise the importance of recognising global events such as Anti-Bullying Week, even if it makes a difference to just one child.
