This past week was Anti-Bullying week where the students in the Secondary School engaged in activities based around this years theme of "Choose Respect".
“The feedback from children and teachers on the theme has been really encouraging. They want to send the message loud and clear that bullying is a behaviour choice, and by choosing respect for others, even when we disagree with them, can create a positive atmosphere where we can all grow, play and learn.” Martha Evans, National Coordinator of the Anti-Bullying Alliance.
The theme was based around the belief that the best way to stop bullying is to understand why people bully others and to highlight that bullying is a learnt behaviour and not a characteristic flaw. Below is the presentation and activities that students discussed in their form groups as well as a short article on what you can do to help your child if they are bullying others.
