During the days of Anti-bullying week from 13.11.2017 to 17.11.2017 in 119SU many activities took place. Almost 500 students were involved, from the 1st to 12th grade.

The aims are:

  • empower children and young people to celebrate what makes them, and others, unique
  • help children and young people to understand how important it is that every child feels valued and included in school, able to be themselves, without fear of bullying
  • encourage parents and carers to work with their school and talk to their children about bullying, difference and equality
  • enable teachers and school support staff to celebrate what makes us ‘all different, all equal’ by celebrating difference and equality and taking individual and collective action
  • to prevent bullying, creating safe environments where children can be themselves

 

The resources available from Anti-Bullying Alliance have been used to ensure a high profile in the school for the Week.

Students under the supervision of their teachers prepared posters with anti-bullying messages and displayed them in the school.

Day 1st, 13 November was dedicated to the ODD SOCKS – many students came to school wearing odd socks to show that even they are different, they are all the same. Students were taught the song Unique.

During classes lectures and presentations were carried in order to teach students about the issues connected with bullying. Discussions about bullying, violence and the media were carried including whether films, TV and computer games that glorify violence and bullying should be banned.

Students were taught the equation 1+3+10= CALM   – 1. Say “Calm down “to yoyrself; 2.Take three deep breaths; 3. Count to 10.

They also have been got to think of number of ways to show kindness and were encouraged to show kindness every day.

Students from the higher grades prepared posters with tips for students, parents and teachers in order to help them to recognize bullying and understand the roles involved in bullying.

Anti-bullying week will become a tradition in our school and will take place every year to  create a new way of promoting a positive and inclusive message to the students.
