ANTI-BULLYING WEEK – May 9th to 13th

Anti-bullying 1Our Annual Anti-Bullying Week took place from May 9th – 13th.   The focus of this year’s week was “Cyber Bullying”.   The week began with a PowerPoint presentation on Cyber Bullying, highlighting the issue and how students can protect themselves.   The school had some excellent information sheets on display throughout the four buildings.   Tuesday saw our students and staff try to take on a 24 hour ‘Device Free Day’ Challenge.    Severe withdrawal symptoms were experienced by students and a number of staff!!   Thursday was ‘Be Yourself Day’ where students didn’t wear school uniforms and we  celebrated each student’s individuality and right to be happy and safe in our school.   The day culminated in our Annual Teacher/Student Match, which the teachers won again!   On Friday we stopped the whole school to show a powerful video on bullying featuring our own students sharing their experiences of  being bullied, being a bystander and engaging in bullying behaviour.   We hugely appreciated the courage shown by all students involved and their desire to make our school a better and safer place.   Our week finished with a farewell lunchtime concert from our excellent school band, ‘Trademark’.
